City Council Places Prop. 1 on November Ballot: Sales Tax Increase for Transportation Projects

At the Snoqualmie City Council meeting on July 12, City Council Members approved placing a proposition on the November 2, 2021 general election ballot. 

Snoqualmie voters will decide whether to approve Proposition 1 to increase the City of Snoqualmie sales and use tax by two-tenths of one percent (0.2%) for local transportation improvements. That equates to an increase of $0.20 cents per $100 dollars of all taxable sales within Snoqualmie, including purchases by residents and non-residents. If approved, the increase would go into effect on April 1, 2022. 

The 0.2% sales and use tax would generate ongoing revenue for transportation improvements, allowing for some of the City’s transportation-related programs and projects to move forward, such as the Street Resurfacing Program, Snoqualmie Parkway Rehabilitation Program, Sidewalk Replacement Program, and other projects included in the Six Year Transportation Improvement Plan and Non-Utility Capital Improvement Plan. 

Approval of the proposition would also repeal the $40 annual vehicle license fee paid by Snoqualmie vehicle owners. The 0.2% sales and use tax would generate more annually than the vehicle license fees and would help rebalance the transportation funding burden between residents and non-residents.

More information about Proposition 1 is posted on the City’s website at

State law requires cities to seek members to be appointed to serve on either the pro committee or con committee for ballot measures. After appointment, both committees work independent of the City to prepare written statements advocating either approval or rejection of the proposition. The statements will be included in the King County Voters’ Pamphlet.

Those interested need to complete the online application. More information about the responsibility of serving on a pro or con committee is available in the King County Elections Jurisdiction Manual.
