The city of Snoqualmie is asking voters to approve Proposition 1, a tax increase for public safety staffing, in the November general election. If approved, this “levy lid lift” would fund hiring two additional police officers and one more firefighter to maintain service levels and response times.
To give voters more information, the city will host two town hall meetings. Meetings are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22 at Cascade View Elementary School, 34816 S.E. Ridge St., and 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 S.E. River St.
Presenters will include Mayor Matt Larson, Fire Chief Mark Correira, and Interim Police Chief Jim Schaffer. Both meetings feature the same presentation.
