CITY OF BOTHELL Proposition 1 Public Safety Levy Lid Lift
The Bothell City Council passed Ordinance No. 2253- (2018) concerning increased regular levy funding for public safety purposes. If approved, this proposition would increase public safety funding for additional fire and EMS, police officers, mental health professionals, support staff, and other public safety expenses. The maximum 2019 levy rate would be $1.96/$1,000 of assessed value (an estimated $220 increase on a $500,000 home). The limit factor on levy increases for the next five years would equal inflation, measured by CPI-W. The 2024 levy would be used to calculate levy limits under state law through 2030.
