Cemetery District Creation (November 2009)
The measure was approved.
The Board of Commissioners for Asotin county sought to form a cemetery district within the county, following previously set rules on maintaining and operating a cemetery in the district. This will also enable the district to levy a property tax not to exceed 11.25 cents.
The ballot read:
"The Board of Commissioners of Asotin County has passed a resolution regarding formation of a Cemetery District for all of Asotin County. This measure would create a cemetery district in Asotin County pursuant to RCW 68.25.185 for maintenance and operations of cemeteries approved to be in the district. The district would be authorized to levy a property tax not to exceed 11.25 cents per thousand dollars of assessed value beginning in 2010.
