Lake Forest Park City Council votes to support Shoreline School District levy measures

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

At its regular meeting on January 25, 2018, the Lake Forest Park City Council voted to support the Shoreline School District’s bond issues, known as Propositions 1 and 2, on the February 13, 2018 special election ballot.

Prior to its vote of support, the Council received a factual presentation by the Shoreline Public Schools Superintendent at its January 11, 2018 work session; then held a public meeting on January 25, 2018 to provide an opportunity for members of the public to communicate their opinions on the measure.

Testimony was unanimously in favor of the measure (with one citizen speaking but not taking a position) and the Council later voted 5-0 (Councilmembers Wright and Resha absent and excused) to adopt Resolution 1675, supporting both Proposition 1 and Proposition 2.

If approved by the voters on February 13, Proposition 1 is a four-year replacement levy for educational programs and operations expenses not funded by the State of Washington. The estimated levy rate is $1.50/$1,000 Assessed Value, with the total per year changing as property values change. The estimated levy amount for 2019 is $21.3 million, and $28.25 million in 2022.

Proposition 2 is a four-year replacement capital levy that will raise $3.25 million per year for the acquisition and installation of instructional technology equipment and infrastructure.
