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 sales and use tax by two-tenths of one percent (0.2%) for local transportation improvements. The increase would go into effect on April 1, 2022 and would apply to residents and non-residents. Proposition 1 would also repeal the $40 annual vehicle license fee in its entirety effective March 31, 2022.
State law requires cities to seek members to be appointed to serve on either the pro or con committee. After appointment, both committees work independent of the City to prepare written statements advocating either approval or rejection. The statements will be included in the King County Voters’ Pamphlet. The King County Elections Jurisdiction Manual has more information about the responsibility of serving on a pro or con committee.
Please complete the online application to be considered. The committees can have no more than three members each.
More information about Snoqualmie Proposition 1 is available on the City website at https://bit.ly/SnoqSalesTax.
