The Port of Everett is again looking at a 1% increase in property taxes for 2015. That’s the same increase the City of Everett will be taking and is the maximum allowed by State law. To explain the increase and give taxpayers a better understanding of how much the Port of Everett takes in, how it spends its revenues and the impact it has on Everett and surrounding communities, the Port has released a 12 page citizen’s guide to the 2015 budget.

The Port has also changed the way it budgets. It’s moved from an annual operating and capital budget to a one year operating budget with a five-year capital plan. Port officials say that will allow them to bring more private investment into the Port. If you’d like to weigh in on how the Port of Everett plans to spend your money next year the Port will hold a public hearing on the proposed 2015 budget on October 28th. The budget is scheduled for approval in early November.
