Ravenswood tax up in the air

Eichler Highlands and its neighbors said yes again to a tax for extra fire and police services.

The neighborhoods are on county land and don’t receive city services. Since 1982, residents have voted to pay about $65 a year for more sheriff patrols and an extra fire truck.

“I’m pleased,” said Cary Weist, president of the neighborhood association. “It will give this community assurances that all public safety measures are being taken.”
