Committee to hold public hearing on levy implementation Plan
King County is preparing to implement the plan to distribute funds from last year’s voter-approved Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy. Metropolitan King County CouncilmemberJeanne Kohl-Welles, chair of the Health, Housing and Human Services Committee (HHHS), is bringing the committee directly to the community to hear from the public on the proposed plan to assist vulnerable populations across our County:
|Tuesday, June 19
Pike Place Senior Center
85 Pike St #200, Seattle
“This is a unique opportunity to see your local government in action outside of the county courthouse,” said Kohl-Welles. “Moreover, it’s a chance to influence a hugely important piece of legislation that has the capacity to impact our community in meaningful ways. And, it’s of immense value to the Council to receive input from our constituents, community organizations, and from those who will be affected by what we do.”
The proceeds from the 6-year levy, approved by voters in 2017, will be directed to:
Veterans. To plan, provide, administer and evaluate a wide range of regional health and human services and capital facilities for veterans and military servicemembers and their respective families.
Seniors and caregivers. To plan, provide, administer and evaluate a wide range of regional health and human services and capital facilities for seniors and their caregivers and to promote healthy aging in King County.
Vulnerable Populations. To plan, provide, administer and evaluate a wide range of regional health and human services and capital facilities for vulnerable populations.
The meeting is an opportunity for service providers, those using the services supported by the levy, and the public to comment on the proposed plan.
