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.
