Yes, there will be no increase in taxes. That entire rumor was blown far out of proportion I guess. The county guy (Kirk Holmes) just told us we were the most expensive area to plow and that their grader/snowblower are stored outdoors which is why they keep breaking down. The board tried to give away the slab of property to them to build a pole building, but that would never fly with the neighbors and was slammed down. The County will contact the fire dept to see about possibly adding on to the station a bay or 2 for the equipment. That was pretty much the chat.

Thanks for the update.
I've done a bit of work with the County Public Works and have been kidded and jibbed about being a Hyak resident. The first time they found out I was a Hyakian they said "oh your one of those people" and then I had to listen to their pains about how Snoqualmie Pass accounted for more of the snow removal budget than the rest of the County combined and how they got more compliants on snow removal from the pass than the rest of the county combined. I told them they should apply some of huge amount of new tax revenue they are now recieving from the three wind farms in the county to their road budget. I would expect that even with county revenues falling that kittitas is not hurting too bad with the windfall they have gotten with the wind farm revenue so I don't feel sorry for them that they have to plow snow up here.
