Parks district to talk about levy
November 30, 2009 · 4:24 PM
The South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District will hold a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1 at its new offices on 5475 Maxwelton Road in Langley (the former county health services building).
Board members will discuss the best campaign strategy to encourage voters to approve the next two-year extension to the parks levy on Feb. 2.
Since its inception, the parks district has maintained a steady rate of 15 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The current levy runs to the end of December 2010. If voters approve, the new two-year levy will kick in January 2011.
