Council proposes public safety ballot measures for general election ballot

The Bothell City Council unanimously agreed last week to ask voters to decide on two complementary public safety measures: an operations levy and a capital bond. The operations levy would address citizens’ priorities including traffic and school safety; reducing theft and property crimes; tackling drug use and homelessness; and providing continued high quality fire and emergency medical response. It would fund 27 additional police officers, firefighters and support staff to provide timely, reliable response to Bothell residents. The capital bond addresses the need to replace two (Canyon Park and Downtown) of three aging fire stations.
The total cost of both measures would be about $350 per year on a $500,000 home.

Watch for Puget Sound Starts Here commercials on Comcast

City of Bothell and dozens of our local partners at the Puget Sound Starts Here campaign developed a series of commercials about storm water pollution. These commercials teach our community why it’s important to check for vehicle leaks, pick up after their pets, and cut back on yard chemicals.

Comcast subscribers are likely to start seeing the ads while watching their favorite shows soon. We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoyed creating them! Learn more about storm water pollution.
