According to information posted as part of a Q & A on the topic, Woodway faces a long-term structural financial deficit due to state limitations on the town’s largest source of revenue – property tax. “This situation is not unique to Woodway – most cities in Washington are faced with a similar challenge,” the information page notes. “The problem is perhaps more acute in Woodway because property taxes represent a disproportionately large percentage of the town’s total operating budget.”
Woodway’s mayor and town council have made it a priority this year to develop a strategy to address the
town’s deteriorating financial condition.
Additional meetings are scheduled on this topic in July. They include:
