City of Snoqualmie Proposition 1: Public Safety Levy Goes to the Voters
Town Hall Meeting on September 29, 6:30 p.m., Snoqualmie City Hall
The City of Snoqualmie has placed a Public Safety Levy measure – Proposition 1 – on the general election ballot. If approved, this operations levy lid lift would fund a public safety plan, which includes hiring two additional police officers and one additional firefighter to maintain appropriate service levels and response times for police, fire, and emergency services.
At the town hall, Fire Chief Mark Correira and Interim Police Chief Jim Schaffer will present information about their departments including police, fire, and emergency response in Snoqualmie; standards for levels of service; response times; department roles and staffing; and how the levy would affect public safety operations. Mayor Matt Larson will share insight of voter-decided levy lid lifts; how property taxes are distributed in Snoqualmie and King County; information about the City’s use of tax revenues; and how the levy would affect local property owners.
