Council holding public hearings Monday, Nov. 1 on budget, property taxes, capital programs

Meeting a day earlier than usual due to the Tuesday, Nov. 2 general election, the Edmonds City Council is scheduled Nov. 1 to hold public hearings on the following: the 2022 city budget, a proposal to raise property taxes and/or the emergency medical services levy by 1% in 2022, and the proposed 2022-2027 Capital Facilities Plan and Capital Improvement Program.

The council is also set to consider a proposal to amend the city’s contract with South County Fire to address a long-term service imbalance that has resulted in non-Edmonds fire units responding more frequently to emergency medical service and fire calls in the city.

Also on the council agenda:

– Amendments to Edmonds Rescue Plan Fund Ordinance (read more in our previous story).

– A November 2021 budget amendment ordinance

– A proclamation for Family Court Awareness Month

  1. “Proposal to raise property taxes,” that must have been a misprint! Property taxes need to be lowered. What a Democratic scam.
