City's Street Levy To Go To Voters In November

The decision on a proposed street levy in the City of Spokane will go to voters this fall. The Spokane City Council last night voted unanimously to send the financing package to voters on November 4.

If approved, the measure would maintain current tax rates at 91 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. But instead of simply paying off old street maintenance debts, the city would get $25 million annually to fix and improve streets.

The Spokesman-Review has more on how the plan would work to fix more streets while not costing you any more.
