Conservation district files tax request

July 28, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Skagit CD – The Skagit Conservation District submitted a tax request Thursday to the Skagit County Board of Commissioners to help pay for the district’s services.

The request proposes that property owners pay $5 per parcel, owners of agricultural-natural resources land pay $1 per parcel, and forest land owners pay $3 per parcel.

That would generate $273,970 a year for services including urban and rural forestry, education and outreach, and technical assistance to landowners for natural resources management, according to the district.

The district is pursuing the request due to a loss in state funding that has impacted its level of service and staff hours, Skagit Conservation District Manager Bill Blake said.
