Voters to Decide Whether to Maintain Public Safety Service Levels
The City of Snoqualmie City Council voted unanimously at the City Council meeting on July 25, 2016 to place a measure on the November election ballot for an operations levy “lid lift” to maintain current service levels for police, fire, and emergency medical services. Under state law, the city may increase the total amount of its property tax levy by no more than 1% each year, unless voters decide to “lift” the 1% cap or “lid” by approving a ballot measure. These funds would allow the hiring of an estimated two additional police officers and one additional fire fighter. Read more about what these funds will cover and how the levy lid lift would affect your property tax.
