The Board of Trustees of Stevens County Rural Library District adopted Resolution No. 03-2011, concerning a proposition to authorize a regular property tax. This proposition would provide for the continued funding for normal operation and maintenance of the District’s libraries and services and would authorize the District to restore its regular property tax levy rate to $0.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation in 2011 for collection in 2012, as allowed by chapter 84.55 RCW. The 2012 levy amount will be used to calculate any subsequent levy limit increase as allowed by chapter 84.55 RCW.
