Pursuant to NRS 295.121, Churchill County is currently forming Ballot Question Committees to prepare arguments advocating and opposing approval of the following ballot question which will be placed on the General Election ballot held on November 3, 2020:

Fallon Churchill County Volunteer Fire Department - $0.03 Tax Levy


One committee will be composed of not more than three citizens who favor approval by the voters of the question and the other committee will be composed of not more than three citizens who oppose approval by the voters of the question. Members of the committees serve without compensation. If no citizens apply to serve on the ballot question committees, the County Clerk shall, in consultation with the District Attorney, prepare an argument advocating approval by the voters and an argument opposing approval by the voters. The County Clerk will not prepare rebuttals of the arguments.

If you are interested in being considered to serve on a ballot question committee, please fill out the Ballot Question Committee Interest Application and email completed form to elections@churchillcounty.org, fax to (775) 423-7069 or drop it at the Churchill County Clerk’s Office at 155 N. Taylor Street, Ste.110. Completed interest forms must be submitted no later than Friday, May 29, 2020. For questions, call (775) 423-6028.

SUMMARY OF BALLOT QUESTION: Currently, there is a $.03 tax levy imposed on the taxpayers of Churchill County. The tax is due to expire on June 30, 2021. This ballot question, if approved by the voters, will extend the tax another six years. The revenue generated from this tax is used to purchase pieces of fire equipment and apparatus that would otherwise be too costly for the county to purchase using the general fund. Typically, a $.03 increase in the ad valorem rate would add approximately $10.50 annually to the property tax bill of a house appraised at $100,000. An ad valorem rate of $.03 will generate approximately $239,000 in revenue for fiscal year 2021-2022 and the years thereafter.
