Skagit 911 Pulls Sales Tax Increase from General Election Ballot

Skagit 911 will not run a one-tenth of one percent sales tax increase to fund infrastructure, technology and equipment improvements on the General Election ballot.  The measure required signed interlocal agreements from all partner cities and jurisdictions to make the ballot. One, possibly two, cities have yet to sign the agreement and so the proposal cannot move forward to the November ballot at this time.
