ASOTIN, WA – Voters in Asotin have said “yes” to the continuation of a levy that will keep emergency medical personnel in their town with paramedics close by.  In last night’s election, nearly 73% of voters approved the Emergency Medical Service levy.  The levy continues the same rate that taxpayers were already paying.  Last year voters turned the levy down.  In a previous interview Mayor Vickki Bonfield said she had heard from a lot of voters that they were confused and thought it was a new levy on top of the current one.
