City Council adopts resolution placing levy lid lift on November ballot

Friday, August 5, 2016

On July 25, the Shoreline City Council adopted Resolution No. 389, which places a levy lid lift on the November 8 ballot.

If approved by Shoreline voters, Shoreline Proposition 1 would help fund and maintain current levels of police and emergency service, including neighborhood safety and traffic patrols; school safety programs; and community crime prevention programs.

It would also help fund park and trail maintenance; playgrounds and play equipment; ball fields, restrooms and the Shoreline pool; and preserve recreation programs for youth, families, and seniors. 

Proposition 1 would also continue funding for community services for seniors, youth, and individuals and families in need.

In 2010, Shoreline voters approved a six-year maintenance and operations levy to help fund basic public safety, parks and recreation, and community services.

That levy will expire on December 31 of this year.

The City’s 10-Year Forecast projects that without restoring these funds, revenues will not be adequate to support the costs of current service levels. If Proposition 1 is approved, a homeowner with a median home value ($353,000) would pay an additional average of $7 per month to maintain the above services.

How do I find out how much money the city spent on the 'Squatch campaign? How much are they spending to take over water districts that were operating just find without them?

The City will NOT preserve funding for seniors in Prop One, they made this claim before. What has happened in the past 2-3 months is that the City has severely cut the funds available to the Shoreline Senior Center, this cut has compounded in severity by the cut in funding to senior centers from United Way.

Squatch Campaign... about $200K, which is basically us paying for advertising for empty apartment buildings and apartment buildings in the works.

Not surprised to hear that funding is being withheld from the Senior Center... what better way to get the ~as the development community insultingly calls it~ "the silver tsunami" out.. by threatening to cut their services prior to the vote, in fact, even prior to this mega-rezone nonsense to "gently urge" those perfectly capable of staying in their homes and *their* lifelong community to "move along" into some senior warehouse and sell their homes to developers. This must be same logic behind the big to-do over replacing the bulkhead at the pool... fearmonger the pool community into redeveloping the site.
