A metropolitan district is a type of special district that provides at
least 2 services from a list of specific services. One of the services that a
metropolitan district is currently authorized to provide is fire protection.
Currently, a metropolitan district is authorized to levy a property tax to
provide services; however, the district can also levy a sales tax for safety

protection, street improvement, and transportation purposes. Both
property taxes and sales taxes require voter approval. The bill allows a
metropolitan district to also levy a sales tax to provide fire protection in
the areas of the district in which the sales tax is levied.
