Budget Adopted for Fiscal Year 2020

By unanimous vote, the West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District Board of Directors on June 12, 2019 adopted the District’s $3 million operating budget for FY 2019-2020, which runs from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.  The adopted budget maintains a high level of investment in on-the-ground conservation actions, reflecting our commitment to work with our constituents to meet the demand for natural resource education and technical assistance to urban and rural residents, farmers, business owners, public schools and the general public.

The Board of Directors maintained the property tax levy rate at $0.075 per thousand dollars of assessed property value, the maximum rate we can levy to provide our programs and services, which increase the economic viability and environmental health of the rural and urban regions.
