The Skagit Conservation District plans to pursue a tax request to help pay for the district’s services.
The proposed tax would require property owners to pay $5 per parcel, plus 10 cents per acre, a year. Owners of forest land would pay $3 per parcel a year.
For the owner of a 10-acre farm, the financial impact would be $6 a year, district manager Bill Blake said.
