October 28, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Skagit CD – The Skagit County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved Tuesday morning a tax to help pay for the Skagit Conservation District’s services, which include forestry, education and assistance to farm owners.

Property owners in Skagit County will pay $5 a parcel a year, forest land owners $3 a parcel, and agricultural land owners $1 a parcel. The tax will begin in 2020 and end after five years, unless renewed.

Conservation District Manager Bill Blake said the tax will generate about $274,000 a year and pay for a full-time forester, cost-share projects to help farmers manage their land, volunteer training programs and more.
