  • Jun 12, 2014 at 4:27PM

Police and fire services in North Bend will both get a boost next year if city voters approve a proposed sales tax increase in November.

Much of that revenue would go toward hiring an eighth dedicated police officer for Snoqualmie, North Bend City Administrator Londi Lindell told the North Bend City Council at its May 20 meeting. Other funds would go toward fire services, she said, pointing out that the city’s existing contract with Eastside Fire & Rescue will increase in cost by about $80,000 next year.
