WASHINGTON, Skagit CD – The Skagit Conservation District plans to pursue a tax request to help pay for the district’s services.
The proposed tax would require property owners to pay $5 per parcel, plus 10 cents per acre, a year. Owners of forest land would pay $3 per parcel a year.
The district, which covers all of Skagit County, is a nonregulatory agency that focuses on maintaining natural resources. It provides services ranging from forestry and farm assistance to public education and more.
