I have a question on bond issues for fire protection districts. I understand that if a fire district wants to issue a bond (to say, pay for new apparatus) they need voter approval. Now if the funding of the bond will put the district over their maximum tax rate, do you also need a question on the ballot to allow the district to tax at a higher maximum rate?

Also, for anyone who has done a bond before, How long does it take to receive the money after an affirmative vote?

Thanks for the help.
