Question on the ballot:

The Board of County Commissioners of Kittitas County, Washington, adopted Resolution 2013-064, concerning a proposition to maintain funding of vitally important law and justice personnel and criminal justice related services. The tax will continue funding for existing law enforcement personnel and criminal justice related services and personnel to include county clerks, prosecuting attorneys, probation, animal control, and associated administrative personnel. The tax will commence January 1, 2015, and will expire in seven years unless further authorized by public vote.
