WOODLAND, Wash. – The Port of Woodland’s 2013 Proposed Final Budget is now available for public review. This budget has been brought forth from preliminary status through two public reviews at commission workshops and a formal adoption by the port commission at its September 20, 2012 regular meeting.
For the fifth consecutive year, the budget does not include an increase in the port’s portion of the property tax. In the 2013 Proposed Final Budget, the port’s share of the property tax is proposed to remain at a total of $200,000 from the 12,000-plus homeowners in the Woodland Port District, which is the same amount as the 2012 budget, which included a tax reduction.
If you are interested in reviewing the budget, you may download it (in PDF format) by clicking here, or by visiting the port office at 115 Davidson in downtown Woodland. Commissioners will consider adoption of the final budget at their November regular meeting, which is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. in the Commission Room at the port office.
A public hearing for the port’s budget will be held during that meeting. Comments may be made by visiting or calling (360-225-6555) the port office, emailing the port office (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by attending the regular commission meeting on November 15 to participate in the public hearing.
