Ballot Measure Language
The Board of Commissioners of the Port District of South Whidbey Island, Island County, Washington, adopted Resolution No. 16-03 concerning Fairgrounds property and a property tax increase to support it. If approved, this proposition would authorize the District to accept the transfer of the Fairgrounds property from Island County, and increase its regular property tax levy rate to support Fairgrounds expenses by five cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation, from its current rate $0.133 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, to $0.183 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for collection in 2017. Thereafter, such new levy amount would be used to compute limitations for subsequent years as allowed by chapter 84.55 RCW. Should this proposition be approved?
