The Sno-Isle Libraries levy rate is capped by state law at 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The levy rate for 2018 is 38 cents. The measure on the April 24 ballot would reset the rate to 47 cents if approved by voters. Library district officials did not feel it was necessary to go all the way to the 50-cent cap. Fire districts are generally also capped by law at 50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The amount levied for any particular fire district can vary and is listed on the annual property tax assessment statement. State law regarding public schools funding recently changed. In general, such operations levies are now capped at $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value, although individual districts may vary.
