The City of Sequim is Seeking Committee Members for Ballot Measure

The Sequim City Council is currently seeking volunteers to serve on two committees to draft statements in favor of or against a ballot measure to renew the taxing authority for the Sequim Transportation Benefit District, which expires in April, 2020. The ballot measure will be on the November 2018 ballot. The statements will be included in the Washington Voter’s Pamphlet for that election.

The Council will appoint up to three members each to Pro and Con Committees who will write statements no longer than 200 words. The Pro Committee’s statement advocating for approval of the ballot measure, and the Con Committee’s statement advocating rejection of the ballot measure, will appear in the Clallam County Voter’s Pamphlet. Statements must be completed by the committees and submitted to Clallam County Elections no later than August 7, 2018.

If approved by the voters, the ballot measure would authorize the renewal and continued collection of a two-tenths of one percent (0.2%) sales and use tax within the boundaries of the district (the same as the City limits) for the purpose of financing a portion of the costs associated with the projects identified in the City’s Transportation Improvement Program. Work performed by the TBD has included street paving, sidewalk and pathway construction, and safety work. If this measure is approved by the voters, the tax will continue to be collected rather than expiring in April 2020 and continue for ten years.
 
Those interested in applying for one of the committee positions should submit their name, contact information, and a brief statement as to why they would like to serve on one of the committees. There is a limit of three members per committee. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 18, 2018. Letters of interest will be submitted to the Sequim City Council for review and appointment at their May 28, 2018 City Council meeting. Please submit letters of interest to the City Clerk’s Office at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 West Cedar Street or via email to kkuznek@sequimwa.gov.

For more information, please contact City Clerk Karen Kuznek-Reese at (360) 681-3428 or kkuznek@sequimwa.gov.
