Board of Clallam County Commissioners Supports PASD Capital Projects Levy ResolutionOn December 19, 2017, the Board of Clallam County Commissioners passed and adopted Resolution 103, 2017 in support of the Port Angeles School District’s Capital Projects Levy measure that will be on the February 13, 2018 special election ballot. 

During a work session on December 18, the Board reviewed and discussed informational material provided by the school district about the Capital Projects Levy. The resolution was signed by Mark Ozias, Randy Johnson and Bill Peach.

“The District deeply appreciates the support of the county commissioners,” said Superintendent Marc Jackson. 

The resolution reads:

“The Clallam County Board of Commissioners has complied with the procedural requirements of that statute and wishes to express a collective decision in support of a ballot proposition.

The Port Angeles School District 121 has placed a Capital Projects Levy on the ballot. Overcrowding (including enrollment demands and State of Washington class size reduction and full day kindergarten initiatives) and educationally outdated infrastructure require the District to support construction, modernization and remodeling of school facilities by expanding and renovating Stevens Míddle School.

It appears certain that the money in the District's Capital Projects Fund for the school years 2019-2025 will be insufficient to permit the district to pay costs of the projects thereof, and that it is necessary that a capital levy be made in 2018 for the collection in 2019-2025, for the District's Capital Projects Fund to provide the money required to meet those costs. 

The estimated levy rate for 2019 is $2.47 per $1,000 of assessed property valuation. 

A property tax exemption is available for qualifying seniors and low-income homeowners.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Clallam County Commissioners, in consideration of the above findings of fact:

Establish a position in support of Proposition 1 - Port Angeles School District 121 Capital Projects Levy (Resolution 1718-04) for the 2019-2025 school years.”
