On May 15, 2018, the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District Board of Directors adopted a budget for fiscal year 2018-2019 (July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019).
The adopted budget maintains a high level of investment in on-the-ground conservation actions and continues our work to manage invasive species in Clackamas County. The adopted budget also includes significant expenditures for the construction of a new office, meeting, and education facility.
On May 15, 2018, the Board of Directors held a public hearing on the budget immediately before their regular Board meeting.
Resolution 2018-004 was adopted by the Board of Directors. This resolution adopts the budget, makes appropriations, levies the property tax, and categorizes the tax.
Property tax rate
For fiscal year 2018-2019, the Board of Directors maintained the property tax levy rate at the same rate as in FY 2017-2018. The current property tax levy rate is 5.0 cents per thousand dollars of assessed property value. The 5.0-cent rate is the maximum rate the District can levy to provide programs and services to the 400,000 people in Clackamas County.
Documents filed with County
Clackamas SWCD staff have filed the appropriate forms and documents with the Clackamas County Assessor and Clackamas County Clerk.
