Council committee action on Levy legislation
The current Families and Education Levy expires at the end of 2011. The legislation, C.B. 117103, considers a proposal that would collect $231 million in Seattle property taxes over the next seven years, which translates to an approximate cost of $124 to the homeowner of the average assessed residential value of $462,045 in 2012. If passed out of committee, the legislation would be considered for final passage at the March 28 Full Council meeting.
