City Seeks People to Serve on Pro & Con Committees for ‘Connecting Bainbridge: SAFE Mobility Levy’

Connecting Bainbridge: SAFE Mobility Levy

The City of Bainbridge Island is looking for members of the community to serve on Pro and Con Committees to prepare written arguments and rebuttals on a ballot measure that will be included in the Kitsap County Voters Pamphlet supporting and opposing approval of the 'Connecting Bainbridge: SAFE Mobility Levy' on the November 6, 2018 general election ballot. 

 

Under the proposed ballot measure, the City Council has determined that it is in the interest of the City to increase investment in non-motorized transportation infrastructure, including projects such as shoulder widening, trail construction and sidewalk improvements, by $15 million during the next seven years through a property tax levy lid lift. A property tax levy lid lift is a voter-approved increase in property taxes above the one percent increase limit set by state law. 

 

There is a limit of three members per committee and each committee shall appoint a chairperson as the primary point of contact. Each committee’s statements for the Voters Pamphlet are a maximum of 250 words and are due to Kitsap County Elections on August 13. The rebuttal statements are limited to 75 words and are due by August 20 (please see pages 14-15 of the 2018 Candidate and Measures Guidelines book for specifications).

 

People who are interested in serving on the committees should apply online at: https://www.bainbridgewa.gov/222/Citizen-Advisory-Groups

 

Applications are due by 4 p.m. on Friday, July 27. Committee appointments will be made by August 7.


Please note, the Council will consider approval of the ordinance at its July 10 Business Meeting.
