LFP Council Public Meeting for King County Prop. 1: Veterans, Seniors, & Human Services Levy

Monday, October 9, 2017

At its October 12, 2017 regular meeting, the LFP City Council will hold a public meeting to receive testimony and consider whether to take a position on King County’s Proposition No. 1, which is on the ballot for the November 7 general election.

At its meeting on June 29, the City Council received a presentation by the King County Veterans and Human Services Levy Manager describing the proposal. After receiving the presentation, the City Council asked to hold a public meeting for the purpose of taking public testimony and to further decide whether to approve a resolution in favor of or opposed to Proposition No. 1.

The ballot measure is for a six-year levy lid lift of approximately $0.10 per thousand of assessed valuation that would raise approximately $60 million per year during the life of the lid lift. Funds would be split almost equally among the three services. The materials provided by King County estimate the approximate cost:

Estimated Annual Cost Property (Home) Valuation
  • $28.50    $285,000
  • $47.10    $471,000
  • $60.00    $600,000
  • $100.00  $1 million

Anyone interested in the item is invited to attend and address the City Council during the public meeting.
