Voters rejecting Gold Bar levy to pay legal bills

GOLD BAR -- Voters were rejecting a one-year levy to raise property taxes to fund the city's public records fight.
Of the 396 ballots counted by 8 p.m., 59.1 percent marked no and 40.9 percent yes, the Snohomish County Auditor's Office reported.
The ballot measure would raise property taxes by $1 per $1,000 in assessed value in 2013. The bill for a house assessed at the city average of $134,000 would go up by $134 as a result. That would give Gold Bar an estimated $113,000 for legal bills.
The extra amount would only be collected in 2013.
The city's yearly budget is about $600,000.
The levy requires a super majority of 60 percent to pass.
