Supporters of Proposition 1, which would authorize the sale of bonds to fund a new Mountlake Terrace Civic Center, may be feeling slightly more positive after the latest results released by the Snohomish County Elections Office Thursday evening, which showed that the measure has now received just over 57 percent yes votes of the total ballots cast. The measure received an additional 414 yes votes and 281 no votes, for a total of 2,688 votes cast so far.
To be approved, Proposition 1 must receive 60 percent “yes” votes. The next count will be at 5 p.m. Friday.
|Mountlake Terrace Prop 1|
Approval of Proposition 1 would authorize the city to raise $25 million through the sale of municipal bonds to build a new city hall, build a new community/senior center, remodel and enlarge the current police station, upgrade furnishings and the roof of the library building, and construct outdoor campus space on the southwest corner of 232nd Street Southwest and 58th Avenue West. Repayment of the 30-year bonds would be through an increase in Mountlake Terrace property taxes beginning in 2014.
