Trinity County voters will decide on four local measures on March 3.

Two of Trinity County's four measures have to do with ambulance service in the county - Measures D and E.

Most of Trinity County, including Weaverville and Hayfork, is served by the non-profit 911 emergency ambulance service called "trinity county life support."

Measure D would formalize it as a community service district. However, if Measure D passes, it cannot be enacted without voters also approving Measure E, which would pay for it.

As things stand right now, "Trinity County Life Support" is under-funded and under-staffed. The current conditions make recruiting new paramedics very difficult.

As an official district, with funding from Measure E - staffing, and backup staffing problems will be solved.
Aging equipment can be replaced, and better training can be provided.

The parcel tax is $83 per year.

So, a yes-vote on measure D approves the formation of the district. And a yes-vote on measure E agrees to the $83 parcel tax. A no-vote on either measure defeats both. They require a super-majority two-thirds to pass.

Also, in Trinity County, Measure A, a cannabis cultivation tax. Marijuana grows would be taxed 85-cents per-square-foot up to 25-hundred square feet. For grows larger than 25-hundred the tax goes up to $1.45 per square foot.
There would also be a seven-percent tax on proceeds from manufacturing and sales.

And finally, for Trinity County, Measure F. It's a bond issue for the Trinity Alps school district. 

Nearly $16.7 million in bonds would be sold in order to fund renovation and modernization of school facilities and to upgrade health, safety and security measures.
The cost to property owners if it's passed is six-cents per $100 of assessed value.
