King County Fire Protection District #43- Proposition 1
Authorizing Restoration of Previous Property Tax Levy Rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of Assessed Valuation for a Six Year Period (2018-2023)The Board of Fire Commissioners of Maple Valley Fire and Life Safety (also known as King County Fire Protection District No. 43) passed Resolution R-2017-005 concerning the District’s property tax levy rate. If approved, this proposition would allow the District to restore its previously voter-approved tax levy rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation in 2017 for collection in 2018. The 2018 levy amount would be the base upon which annual increases of up to 6% (but not to exceed a rate of $1.50) would be computed for the succeeding five years (2019 – 2023). The 2023 levy amount would be used for computing the limitations for subsequent levies as allowed by Chapter 84.55 RCW and as provided in Resolution R-2017-005.
