Levy Lid Lift for Veterans, Seniors and Vulnerable PopulationsThe King County Council passed Ordinance 18555 concerning funding for veterans, seniors and vulnerable populations. If approved, this proposition would replace an expiring levy and fund capital facilities and regional health and human services for veterans and military service members and their families, seniors and their caregivers, and vulnerable populations. It would authorize an additional property tax for six years beginning with a 2017 rate of $0.10 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for collection in 2018. The first year levy amount would be the base for computing annual increases up to 3.5% for collection in 2019 through 2023, as provided in Ordinance 18555.
