Public meetings on City of Shoreline finances

Monday, May 16, 2016

Come hear about City’s financial sustainability:
City to host two public meetings

Wednesday, May 18, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Richmond Beach Congregational Church
1512 NW 195th Street

Wednesday, May 25, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Shoreline Public Library
345 NE 175th Street

The Financial Sustainability Citizen Advisory Committee has been reviewing the City’s Financial Sustainability Strategies since February, particularly as they relate to the expiring maintenance and operations property tax levy lid lift that Shoreline residents passed in 2010.

The upcoming public meetings are an opportunity for the community to learn about what the City has been doing to secure Shoreline’s financial sustainability and what challenges lie ahead.

As long as the 1% cap remains on property tax increases, the City will continue to face budget gaps every six to eight years as the cost to deliver the same basic services outpaces revenue growth.

In addition to looking at ways to operate more efficiently and to cut costs, the City has also looked at different strategies for ensuring revenue keeps pace with costs. Come learn about those strategies and provide your input.

I'm all for paying my fair share of taxes, but I'm not voting for any increase in light of the petulant, arrogant, and haphazard treatment of homeowners in the light rail areas at the hands of City Hall and their shoving of urbanist rhetoric down our throats. #NoFatigue

And seeming as how plans of 4 to 7 story buildings are popping up all over the 185th subarea now from... 10th Ave on the east side of I-5, to Corliss next to Cromwell Park, to Wallingford and Densmore far away from the walk-shed are feeling the imminent impacts of MEGA-DEVELOPMENT. What was that again about a 100 year build out? Because this seems like the City Council, Planning Dept, and Planning Commission have opened the flood gates for Greek Week. This Gang Bang of our neighborhoods is brought to you by the very individuals you elected.
