The Leavenworth City Council conducted a public hearing on December 11, 2018 to  consider the option of “Assumption” of the Leavenworth Transportation Benefit District and subsequently passed the necessary ordinance for assumption.  What this means is that the City Council has dissolved the separate entity Board and has assumed all the rights, powers, functions, and obligations of the Leavenworth Transportation Benefit District pursuant to Chapter 36.74 RCW.  The Leavenworth City Council will now continue as the governing Board to ensure all collections of sales taxes, commitments to long-term debt and ongoing capital construction costs continue in support of transportation related projects within the city limits of Leavenworth.  The final minutes of the Transportation Benefit District will end as of the final meeting that was held on November 27, 2018 and are posted to this website.  The 2019-2020 Final Budget Document will be the final budget document for the separate entity and will be incorporated as a new Special Revenue Fund within the City of Leavenworth’s future budgets beginning in 2019-2020.  Future detailed information on the projects completed will be included within the Leavenworth City Budget documents.

Readers Guide to the Budget

The Leavenworth Transportation Benefit District was formed by Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Leavenworth on July 13, 2010. The budget document incorporates the Transportation Benefit District Board’s priorities that were incorporated in the Board’s Resolutions on July 29, 2010 that adopted By-laws, a District Finance Plan and a ballot measure to increase the retail sales tax. On November 2, 2010, the voters of the City of Leavenworth overwhelmingly approved the ballot measure for a rate increase of two-tenths of one percent (.02%) on the sales and use tax within the city limits. It is our hope that this document can provide our citizen’s with an understanding of the Transportation Benefit District budget and what services and projects are funded within the budget.
