The quarter-cent tax passed by a vote of 6,307 to 3,165.
The vote follows a decision by Heartland Health earlier this year to discontinue providing ambulance service to the community on July 1, 2014.
A "yes" vote provides funding to turn service over to a county-run, non-profit board.
The County Clerk's office estimated a 15 percent turnout during Tuesday's election. The final count was a little more than 18 percent.
