Letters of Interest Due to Serve on Pro and Con Property Tax Levy Lift Committees

REDMOND, WA – The City of Redmond is requesting letters of interest from residents interested in serving on one of two committees exploring potential levy lid lifts to fund public safety. Letters are due to Redmond’s city clerk by June 17, 2022, and should state the interest and qualifications for participation. 

Residents volunteering on these committees are responsible for writing arguments for voters’ pro and con positions for the property tax levy lid lift ballot measure tentatively scheduled for Nov. 8. These arguments must be filed with King County by Aug. 9, with rebuttals filed by Aug. 11. In addition to writing ballot arguments, up to three residents serving on each committee will be responsible for responding to media and community questions regarding the ballot measure. 

Residents who would like to be considered to serve on these committees should submit their letter of interest by June 17 to the city clerk by email at cityclerk@redmond.gov, or mail at Redmond City Hall, P.O. Box 97010, M/S 3NFN, Redmond, WA 98073-9710. Appointments to each committee will be made by July 27 and submitted to King County by Aug. 2. 

The Redmond City Council is currently reviewing a draft Redmond Safety Funding Plan and will vote by July 19 to confirm the inclusion of a property tax levy lid lift ballot measure this year. To learn more about the draft Redmond Safety Funding Plan, visit LetsConnectRedmond.com/Safety
