General Obligation Bond

Bond Approval

In November 2021, voters within TVF&R's service area approved Measure 34-308, which allows Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue to issue $122 million in proposed general obligation bonds for emergency services. Because new bonds will replace old debt, there will not be an increase in TVF&R’s total tax rate.

Bond funding will be used to:

  • Replace response vehicles as they reach the end of their useable life, including fire engines, trucks, and medical vehicles used throughout the District.
  • Fund fire station projects including seismic upgrades, security features, expansions, or living quarter modifications at 10 of 29 stations.
  • Rebuild the King City fire station at the existing location.
  • Relocate the Aloha fire station to a more central location for local and regional response.
  • Fund safety upgrades for TVF&R’s training center where responders practice fire suppression, emergency medical care, technical rescue, hazardous material response, and other emergency skills.
  • Purchase land for future fire stations in areas where growth is expected to occur.
