The Board of Cemetery Commissioners of Cemetery District #1, Whatcom County Washington, adopted Resolution No. 01-11 concerning a proposition to restore the District’s regular property tax levy. The proposition authorizes the District to restore its regular property tax levy to an amount not to exceed ($.1125) per $1,000.00 of assessed value for collection in 2012 to pay operational cost increases, and set the limit factor at 100% plus the annual percentage change for each of the six years (2012 to 2017). 2016 levy amount will be used to calculate subsequent levy limits.
