Ambulance tax measure fails
Wednesday, May 13, 2015 — Efforts to get ambulance services back in the immediate area of Big Valley have failed by a slim margin.
A special mail-ballot-only election was held May 5 and residents in both Lassen and Modoc County decided not to impose a $64 parcel tax to cover the costs of emergency medical services.
According to County Clerk/Recorder Julie Bustamante, whose office covered the election for both counties, Measure C failed by just four votes.
The tax had to pass by two-thirds vote or 414 votes.
