Positions available on pro/con committees for supplemental levy

Friday, July 29, 2011

As Shoreline School District Proposition No. 1 is on the general election ballot, (see related story) the measure is automatically included in the local voters pamphlet published by King County.

The District has written an Explanatory Statement for the voters pamphlet.

Passage of Proposition No. 1 would allow the levy of $1,300,00 of property taxes within the Shoreline School District for collection in 2012, the levy of $1,400,000 of taxes for collection in 2013, and the levy of $1,500,000 in taxes for 2014. The purpose of the levy is to support class size in response to State budget reductions. This supplemental levy is in addition to the maintenance and operation levy, approved by the voters in the February 2010 election, on all taxable property within the District. The taxes approved by this proposition would be deposited in the Shoreline School District's General Fund and expended to support class size. If authorized by the voters and based upon current assessed valuation information, the estimated levy rates per $1,000 of assessed value would be $0.09 (2012 collection); $0.09 (2013 collection) and $0.10 (2014 collection).

The District must appoint members to pro and con committees who are willing to write statements for the voters' pamphlet. There is a limit of three members per committee but committees may seek advice of any person or persons. The pro and con committees will agree to submit statements in favor of an in opposition to the ballot measure for the local voters pamphlet.

They are responsible for submitting the pro/con statement and rebuttal statement, following all guidelines, to King County elections by the appropriate deadline.

If you would like to be considered to serve on the pro or con committee regarding Shoreline School District Proposition No. 1, please send a letter of interest to Craig Degginger, Public Information Officer, Shoreline School District, 18560 1st Ave. N.E., Shoreline, WA 98155, or email by no later than 5 p.m. Friday, August 5, 2011.
