- Large District ($1100) - more than $500,000 in total previous year's tax levy
- Medium District ($550) - between $250,000 and $500,000 in total previous year's tax levy

- Dues for a Non-profit entity (such as a VFD or another professional association) are $275/year. Corporate entitiy dues are $1100. Remember that an ESD's emergency service provider (even those serving as an independent contractor) are covered by their ESD's membership.
