Pender Township leaders requesting property tax levy increase to survive

A meeting will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 30, that will very likely decide the future of the Pender Township and how its roads are maintained.

A vote to add $.05 to the township’s levy failed in the November election, and the officers of the township say that funding for the political subdivision will be exhausted this year.

The town hall style meeting set for 6 p.m. that night at the Pender Fire Hall will provide township chairman Russ Renter, treasurer Delwin Suhr and secretary Brent Kelly an opportunity to share information about the impact of switching from township funding for roads to having Thurston County take over those duties entirely.

Under the township system, funds raised by its taxing authority can be controlled more locally than if the county assumes control.

The township board is again asking that residents approve an increase of $.05 per $100 in taxable valuation to its taxing authority.

Votes can be cast that night from 6-9 p.m. at the fire hall or can be returned with August utility bills to the village office.

The board members can be reached at the following numbers if constituents have questions: Renter, 402-380-3412; Suhr, 712-253-5437; Kelly, 402-385-3667.
