Council Adopts 2022-2026 Five-Year Financial Plan

After receiving input from the community through the Citizen Budget Survey and the December 1st Budget Open House, the District adopted its 2022-2026 five-year financial plan at the December 13th Regular Council Meeting. Based on the average residential property assessment, the plan identifies a residential property tax increase of approximately $100 per year or $8.33 per month to fund District services next year.

Listening to the community, we heard about the need to improve local road infrastructure and continue with the implementation of the Transportation Master Plan, proceed with implementation of the Parks and Trails Master Plan and implement adaptation and mitigation strategies to respond to the climate emergency.
