Lake Forest Park City Council considering levy lid lift

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

The Lake Forest Park City Council is considering a levy lid lift, which is a proposal to increase property taxes. This can only be done by a vote of the people. As part of their review process, the City Council will host a Public Hearing on April 22 at 7:45 pm to get formal input from citizens. If a levy request is put on the ballot, it will only be after all available ideas and alternatives have been carefully considered.

Additionally, citizens are encouraged to communicate your questions, thoughts, concerns and opinions regarding levels of service and the City budget to City Hall.  At the May 13 Council meeting it is anticipated that there will be a vote to place the levy on the ballot. If it is on the ballot, then the citizens of Lake Forest Park will vote on the proposal on August 17.

The City will be developing responses to frequently asked questions that will be posted on the City website.

To submit a question, email, or call 206-957-2804. The Mayor and City Council encourage your input and participation in this challenging process.

The City has developed an information page on the web. Click here to go to the city web page on the levy.
