County to Ask Voters for Property Tax Increase

The Mason County Commission is placing a property tax levy lid lift proposition on the November 7th General Election Ballot. The Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday asking voters for a 37 cents per thousand increase in property taxes to “maintain Public Safety, Criminal Justice and General Fund Services.” This additional property tax is estimated to generate approximately $3.4 Million in 2018 and if approved would be a permanent property tax increase bringing the County’s property tax rate to $1.77 per thousand of assess value.


The property tax levy lid lift proposition needs a simple majority to pass and all county registered voters will decide.
