Corrections Seeding the future officer funded in new budget By Nathan Whalen Staff Reporter

Sheriff Mark Brown has to look for a new corrections officer who would be willing to work for one year. The Board of Island County Commissioners approved a $67 million budget after a public hearing Monday night. That approval included funding for the single position, but Brown said it could be difficult to find someone willing to go through the academy before starting his work at the jail for a position that will last a single year. “I just don’t know how practical it will be,” Brown said in an interview after the public hearing. He had originally submitted a budget request asking funding for three corrections officers and 10 deputies; however, that number got pared down to the one corrections officer. Commissioner Angie Homola said in a Tuesday morning interview, that funding for the corrections officer provides flexibility should the county ask the voters to approve either a sales tax or a property tax initiative sometime in the future. She doesn’t want to allocate dollars from the general fund when another funding source would come available. That money could serve other needs in the county’s general fund. She wouldn’t say whether a sales tax or property tax proposal would be offered or a timeline as to when that would happen. The commissioners approved the Island County budget, along with a 1 percent property tax increase to the county’s current expense levy, roads levy and Conservation Futures Fund. They voted 2 to 1 with Commissioners Homola and Helen Price Johnson supporting the budget and tax increases and Commissioner Kelly Emerson voting against the proposals. Budget director Elaine Marlow described the document as a “status quo” budget. The commissioners did hash out some issues about current funding. The Island County museum had originally asked for $15,000. That money had been originally slashed to $5,000, before the commissioners settled on $8,000. The remaining money will be made up from tourism dollars with the understanding that the Trust Board of Ebey’s Landing will ask for less when 2 percent tourism dollars are awarded, Price Johnson said. “I want to thank you for really trying to hammer this out,” Island County Museum director Rick Castellano said during the meeting. The commissioners also approved the See BUDGET, page 7

Penn Cove still battling June loses By Harry Anderson For the Examiner


an Jefferds steps carefully from the skiff onto one of the mussel farm platforms his family has operated for 37 years. It’s a sunny, picture-postcard morning in August on Penn Cove, with Mount Baker shimmering in the distance and baby seals lazily reclining on platforms nearby. But Jefferds isn’t smiling. He’s worried. He pulls one of the hundreds of platform lines out of the water. By now, those lines are usually crowded with seed mussels that have attached themselves to the lines during the first spawning season in June. But that initial seeding didn’t happen this year. The Deep Sea disaster in mid-May seems to have disturbed the natural process. Jefferds knows that if the “second seed” that normally occurs in late summer doesn’t happen, his business might lose some or all of its 2013 harvest of Penn Cove mussels, worth tens of millions of dollars. He holds the line in his hand; dozens of tiny seed mussels are vis-

A few days ago

Jefferds said he’s now satisfied that a decent “second seed” has occurred, which assures a good crop of Penn Cove mussels next summer. But he said the loss of the first seed means that next summer’s harvesting will be delayed by three months – meaning that the company must stretch its 2012 crop until then. The company also still has not recovered the loss of some business from large customers who ordered mussels from other suppliers last summer when the local harvest was disrupted. Disrupted harvests this summer and concerns over next year’s crop are understandable, given what Jefferds and his Penn Cove See MUSSELS, page 6

Budget cuts could hit ferry service As the state budget process gets rolling, reductions on Whidbey’s ferry routes are being considered. Washington State Ferries was asked by the governor’s office to come up with $5 million in budget cuts for the upcoming biennial budget. Ferry officials submitted their proposal to the governor’s office last week. Officials are proposing to reduce two-boat ferry service to one-boat ferry service on the Port Townsendto-Coupeville route for four weeks in the spring and four weeks in the fall. They also

propose eliminating latenight service on the Mukilteo-to-Cinton route. David Moseley, Washington State Ferries assistant secretary, said the proposal focused on ideas that would have the least effect for riders. “These are sailings that don’t have high ridership,” Moseley said last week. According to information from Washington State Ferries, reducing two-boat service on the Coupeville run would save the ferry system an estimated $486,000. And eliminating the 12:30 a.m. sailing from Clinton and the 1:05 a.m. sailing from Mukilteo would save $934,000.

Man sentenced for toting shotgun in Coupeville By Jessie Stensland Staff Reporter

A 19-year-old man who walked around Coupeville with a sawed-off shotgun in his backpack, looking for his mother’s boyfriend, was sentenced to jail this week. Esteban Guerro pleaded guilty in Island County Superior Court last week to burglary in the second degree and unlawful possession of a firearm in the second degree. Judge Vickie Churchill agreed with a sentencing recommendation and sent him to jail for six months. Guerro’s mother spoke in his defense. She said she had been a victim of serious domestic violence and her son is very protective. She said her boyfriend stole her car and money while she was in the hospital. Guerro was upset that the the man had abandoned his mother, she said.

Guerro’s attorney, Peter Simpson of Coupeville, pointed out that the man was cooperative. On Aug. 6, Guerro’s mother reported to a deputy that he was very upset with her boyfriend and planned on killing him. The woman said Guerro and his friend left the home on foot to look for him. He was armed with a sawed-off shotgun, which he was carrying in a backpack. Before leaving, Guerro allegedly threatened to shoot a random person if he couldn’t find his mother’s boyfriend, according to a police report. About an hour and a half later, a deputy found Guerro and his friend walking on Main Street. Guerro didn’t have the weapon, but led deputies to where he had hidden it in bushes near the library. The deputies found a sawed-off .410 shotgun with the stock removed.

Despite the proposal, a prominent senator said the reductions won’t become a reality. “It’s not going to happen as long as I’m chairman,” said state Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, the Camano Island Democrat who heads the influential Senate Transportation Committee. She said similar cuts were suggested two years ago, but those didn’t happen either. “I told people we weren’t going to make cuts and we didn’t make cuts,” Haugen said. She emphasized that she was instrumental in pushing through projects that improve the ferry system, most notably the construction of three 64-car vessels and the current construction of a 144car vessel. Portions of those projects were built by Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland. Haugen warned that state transportation priorities could change if she’s no longer in the senate. The longtime Dist. 10 senator placed second in the August primary behind state Rep. Barbara Bailey, a Republican from Oak Harbor.

Haugen said the ferries need a stable source of funding and she has some ideas for the next legislative session. Moseley said that the ferry system’s proposal affects eight of the 10 routes and would be suggested regardless of who is in office. In addition to the Whidbey Island routes, the ferry system is proposing to eliminate trips on the Port Defiance and Bremerton routes and extending winter service, essentially canceling sailings, from 12 weeks to 20 weeks. The proposal also suggests eliminating a third vessel over the weekends on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route. In all, the ferry system’s proposal to the governor’s office comprises $4.8 million in cuts. Over the past several years, the ferry system reduced its budget by $40 million without reducing service, Moseley said. The governor’s office is supposed to submit a proposal to the Legislature in midDecember; Moseley, however, thinks whoever is elected governor in November will submit a new version to the Legislature once in office.

‘Dentistry’ saves the Alexander Blockhouse By Elisabeth Murray Staff Reporter

The drill whines as it pierces decay and chunks of rot are ripped from the gaping wound. The volunteer laborer lifts his mask and peers inside the void. Some wood rot remains. He shutters his mask and presses the tool into the crumbling structure. More saw dust flies into the air and bits of wood fall onto the grass below the scaffolding he is perched upon. Time and the shifting seasons have ravaged the Alexander Blockhouse in Coupeville - and have also made it a perfect candidate for historic preservation. And also for some new techniques. The preservation crew is trying to preserve the exterior of the log structure, while removing the wood rot that has ravaged the insides of the buildings walls. “This process is a lot like dentistry,” said Dr. Harrison Goodall, a heritage building surveyor who has volunteered his expertise to create and implement the plan to save the historic structure from deterioration. “A dentist wouldn’t go in and pull a tooth because it has a cavity.

tween the Island County Historical Society and Museum building and canoe shed on Northwest Alexander Street. The blockhouse is one of four surviving in Central Whidbey. The volunteer crew will spend the next several Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays taking off the decay and getting as close as possible to good wood. An epoxy will then be applied to stabilize any remaining decay and prevent it from spreading further. The wooden faces will then be placed. Even the replacement logs carry a bit of history. This Spring the Coupeville Lion’s

A member of the Central Whidbey Lions Club volunteers his time and talent to help preserve the Alexander Blockhouse at the Island County Historical Society and Museum. The museum was awarded a matching grant from the Ebey’s Forever Fund for the restoration project. He would try to go in and drill it out and fill it in.” And the process that Goodall and his fellow volunteers from the Central Whidbey Lion’s Club will follow is much the same – removing the damaged parts while trying to keep as much of the original intact. “Some might say to go in and just tear out whole sec-

Musicians’ instruments stolen A pair of jazz musicians and longtime residents of Greenbank are reeling after their home was burglarized while they performed. Kristi O’Donnell and Keith Bowers had their home burglarized the evening of Sept. 22 while they were performing at Djangofest Northwest in Langley. Burglars got away with instruments, recording equipment and personal items – including the ashes of O’Donnell’s late mother. The instruments stolen include a Heritage H575 Archtop Jazz Guitar, a Gibson Tal Farlow,

The wood for both blockhouses had been hand-hewn with an ax – a difficult technique that few, if any, possess today. Posters explaining the process are on display at the block house, but the process won’t be as easy as the signs make it appear. “It won’t be as neat and orderly,” Goodall said. “This is not your typical carpentry.”

a Heritage electric guitar, a Louden O10c acoustic guitar, an electric bass and a ukelele. The pair often performs locally as part of the acoustic jazz group Trio Nouveau. On her website, kristio. com, O’Donnell urged the thieves to return the stolen items by leaving them at the house in the open shed with the green roof. With several concert dates scheduled in upcoming weeks, the pair are playing on borrowed instruments. Upcoming performances include Friday, Oct. 5 at Ciao Restaurant in Coupeville.

tions,” Goodall said. “But we are trying to save the past. This building deserves to be around – infinitely.” But like a dentist’s approach to a decayed tooth, sometimes more aggressive measures are necessary. For example, in the back of the structure hidden from street view, the crew is doing the historical preservation equiv-

Don’t forget Whidbey’s other military residents The mistake most people make is thinking that the military only includes those you see in uniform. There are people here who are retired military that would also leave if the base was closed. That includes teachers, law enforcement, doctors, small business owners, bankers and artists, just to name a few. According to the Whidbey Island Almanac, 60 percent of the Whidbey Island population is connected to the Navy base. The base itself pours $590 million into the island economy each year. That doesn’t count the money that we retired military spend here. We own property, we pay taxes, we spend lots of money – and we vote. The Navy is the No. 1 employer on the island with 7,500 military personnel and 2,400 civilian employees and contractors. The Navy has been on this island for 70 years. Fort Casey takes us back well over 100 years. Other large employers include the school districts, banks and hospitals. Tell me how many of these jobs would be here if 60 percent of the population left? They will leave with the money and the younger population. Let me give you two examples of the military and local economy that I have experienced in my 38 years as a military spouse. We lived in a small town in North Dakota with a base located about 10 miles outside of town. That base had also been there for more than one generation. The new city council decided that they didn’t want the service men and women wearing uniforms in their town. Out of uniform and with family members they were fine, but stopping in town on their way to duty at the outlying missile silos was out of the question. Within six months the business people in town were crying for the ruling to be overturned because they were on the brink of losing their business. The ruling was overturned and so was the city council. We also lived in Texas when the oil crisis hit. We lived in a bedroom community outside of San Antonio. Two out of every three houses were empty because the owners could no longer afford them. Houses that had sold in the 70s for $125,000 and up were sitting empty for $50,000. The only stable part of that economy was the military and civilian workers on the bases. They kept that town going through rough times so it didn’t die. Now I ask you, with gas prices going through the roof where is the stability of our island tourist trade? Be careful what you wish for. Can you, the non-military minority, keep this island’s economy going by yourselves? Those jets have been flying here since long before I was a small child watching them with glee from my aunt’s beach house deck. The island is an enchanting place to live where everyone is welcome. Just don’t tell me I am not.

Romney means an end to free rides Mitt Romney complained to people paying $50,000 a plate that people making less than $50,000 a year don’t pay income taxes and expect the government to furnish them health care, food, housing, and you name it. Shiftless as they are, though, it’s pointless to try to convince them to take personal responsibility. The way he did, for instance. He took the personal responsibility of putting himself through college without having to

get a job. His wife Ann told The Boston Globe that they were so poor, “we had to sell some of our stock to get by.” He took the personal responsibility of raising $37 million from rich investors to start Bain Capital. And now that his fortune is more than twice the net worth of the last eight presidents combined, he takes the personal responsibility of putting money in Swiss bank accounts and tax shelters in the Cayman Islands to avoid paying income taxes on it. The rest of his income is taxed at about half the rate paid by people who actually work. If Romney becomes president, the free rides will be over. His running-mate already has a plan to make Medicare a personal responsibility.

Island County needs Jeff Lauderdale The Nov. 6 election may be the most important election in our republic’s history at all levels of government. Therefore, if you are a registered voter in Island County, make sure you take the time to vet all candidates thoroughly before you vote. In my opinion, Island County needs Jeff Lauderdale as Island County commissioner District 1. Jeff is a highly intelligent man (Retired Navy commander, submarines, with 26 years of service; mechanical, nuclear and network engineer) of quiet, thoughtful repose. For almost three years now, Jeff has acted on behalf of Island County citizens by voluntarily attending commissioner’s hearings and workshops twice a week. Jeff researched and exposed the flaws, faulty science, and unnecessary expense associated with the on-site septic inspection management program and then brought it to the Board of Island County Commissioners. The two Democrat commissioners, Johnson and Homola, ignored Jeff’s research despite the fact that it was validated by Keith Higman, Island County Health director. Unlike Johnson and Homola, Jeff Lauderdale has also taken the time to read Island County’s lengthy, complex and ambiguously written Shoreline Master Plan. When you vote in November, do you want to keep the current majority who are focused on more regulation, more bureaucracy, and more taxes? Or will you opt for new commissioners who respect your property and your pocketbook?

Republicans will prolong the pain With the election looming on the horizon I just had to chime in. I have been reading all the letters to the editor extolling the virtues of their “guys,” be they Republican or Democratic candidates, so here are some facts that may help. Republican partisans claim that their guys are good for jobs and business and with the economy being in the tank they figure they can run on this claim and people won’t notice that they are not the big “job creators” that they claim to be. The Republicans’ greatest skill is obstructing any jobs programs that will help Americans just so it will hopefully make Obama look bad. Think about that for a minute, making Obama look bad is more important to the Re-

publicans than your pain. According to the U.S. Department of Labor since 1961, starting with Kennedy and ending with Obama in 2012, the economic policies of the Republican Party have created 23.9 million jobs for Americans. During this same period the economic policies of the Democratic Party has created 42 million jobs for Americans. When the Republicans bloviate about being “good for jobs and business,” they are either ignorant of this fact and buy into the party line or are disingenuous because this is not what they claim. During this same period these “make the government small enough to drown in the bath tub” Republicans increased the federal, state and local payrolls by 7.1 million positions, as opposed to the Democratic Party adding 6.3 million positions. Both numbers are quite large but still shows the “party of small government” beating out the Democratic Party with public sector employment. All these facts make me wonder: When will the pain of being a Republican, of being associated with a political party that has shown itself to be an abject failure along the very political lines they claim to be so strong on? When will this pain drive more Republicans to another party that has more of their interests at heart? Vote Republican? Not on your life. I like people too much to want to prolong their pain.

Homola has done a good job for County I am a diehard Angie Homola fan. But this didn’t happen as a result of being inundated with a barrage of signs. It happened as a result of a comparison of the candidates running for Island County Commisioner from District 2. What impressed me most – right after her effective work on the current Island County Board of Commissioners – is that Angie states her first priority is the need to “create local business and living wage job opportunities.” Angie has already proven her ability to cope with and reduce the county budget in spite of the economic downturn and the fact

that the “Rainy Day” fund had already been decimated before she took office. Today Island County has an upgraded bond rating, as well as a balanced budget. At the same time, Angie pays responsible attention to land use and development. And what does her opponent have to offer the community? More temper outbursts and no proven record of leadership? In today’s recessive economy and volatile world, I will vote for the candidate who has walked the walked - not just talked the talk. I will vote for Angie Homola for Island County Commissioner District 2. After you have made your own comparison of the candidates, I hope you will join me.

Whidbey Kite Festival was a great success Although there was light wind for the Whidbey Island Kite Festival last weekend, it was well attended and enjoyed by many spectators and participants. Lots of kites colored the sky. There were events for kids, like kite making and a teddy bear drop (throw), as well as kite flying, kite lessons and kite watching for adults. The Central Whidbey Lions Club provided food which allows people to have a snack while taking in kites of all sizes, shapes and colors in the air. Thank you to our sponsors Big Rock Designs, Camp Casey, Coupeville Chamber of Commerce, and The Cove Thai Cuisine. Many other local businesses generously contributed to our bag raffle, which helps support the festival. Numerous people helped organize the event as well as providing manpower for setting up and taking down tents and other field equipment. We appreciate the contributions of so many. It was a wonderful, fun event. The performances at the indoor event Saturday night were amazing! How do you fly a kite indoors? Come next year and see!

Mussels: 2013 crop affected; from page 1 Shellfish company have been through since the Deep Sea, a derelict 140-foot Alaskan crab trawler, burned and sank last May and leaked at least 1,400 of the estimated 4,500 gallons of diesel fuel aboard into the water that supports both the Jefferds’ mussel farm and all forms of aquatic life in Penn Cove. When the Deep Sea caught fire late on May 12, Jefferds, general manager of Penn Cove Shellfish, didn’t realize how big the threat would be. “I thought eventually they’d get the fire out and we’d be closed a day or two. Then they’d tow it away and that would be that,” he said. Instead, his business was closed for a month. At the time, he estimated the closure was costing Penn Cove Shellfish $50,000 a day in lost harvest. Today, he’s still calculating the total cost. Once the mussel farm resumed operations in midJune, it became apparent that the diesel spill had upset the initial seeding, which at minimum means that Jefferds’ 2013 harvest of local mussels may be delayed at least two months. “After the diesel spill, there was a ‘down-welling’ effect caused by tidal action,

and that took some of the diesel down as far as four or five feet below the surface,” he said. “The government lab reported that our growing mussels on the lines were able to get rid of it, but the downwelling seems to have upset the ability of the young seed mussels to attach to our lines, exactly when that naturally happens in June.” Those few days in May are burned in Jefferds’ memory, but like any farmer he doesn’t stop long to think about the past. He has a harvest to worry about – this year’s and next. Penn Cove Shellfish is the nation’s largest commercial mussel farm, harvesting 1.5 to 2 million pounds of the distinctive mollusks from Penn Cove each year and shipping them as far as New York, Miami, Singapore and Thailand. “Penn Cove Shellfish has a global reach and has established a reputation that is absolutely impeccable,” said Sherry Wyatt, marketing manager for Island County Tourism. “When I traveled to New York to speak about our region, the high profile attribute most identified with us was Penn Cove mussels. Some knew about whales,

Freed from the platforms lines on which they grew for a year, the mussels are raised mechanically to a scrubbing machine to remove barnacles and debris. Whidbey Naval Air Station or Deception Pass, but everyone seemed to have heard of Penn Cove mussels.” In the early years, it wasn’t easy finding buyers for Penn Cove mussels. Most Americans had never eaten mussels. They were a considered a delicacy eaten in Asia and France. When they first tried to sell them in places like Pike Place Market in Seattle, “a lot of guys thought we were selling bait,” he said. Then came their big break. Seattle’s best French restaurant in the late 1970s was Le Tastevin, operated by two well-known chefs, Emile Ninaud and Jacques Boiroux. They spotted the mussels in the market, bought some and put them on their menu. Not long thereafter, Emmett Watson, the legendary columnist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and Times, wrote a column in which the

Penn Cove Shellfish employees Renato Castillo, Paola Barajas, Andrea Lawless, Ricky Contestabile and Kelsey Matzen aboard the harvest barge perform the final sort to remove empty shells and debris before mussels are packed and readied to be taken ashore. two French chefs declared that the mussels from “Coopveel” were the best they’d ever tasted – better even than those in their native France. Soon, other chefs got on the bandwagon and the fame of the local mussels began to

grow. Today, Penn Cove Shellfish grows two types of mussels. The species native to Penn Cove and which naturally attaches to lines on the local platforms is Mytillus trossolus. Its meat is cream-

colored and it typically grows to a harvest size of two or three inches. The other species farmed locally is Mytillus galloprovincialis, commonly known as the Mediterranean mussel, which typically grows to a harvest size of about four inches. The meat of the females is apricot-colored. The Mediterranean mussels harvested by Penn Cove Shellfish begin life in the world’s largest shellfish hatchery in Quilcene. Once the young mussels are seeded on lines, they are transported to Penn Cove to grow to maturity. The Quilcene hatchery is owned by Coast Seafoods of South Bend, Wash., which in 1996 acquired a 50 percent interest in Penn Cove Shellfish. The Jefferds family continues to own the other 50 percent and manages the company as a stand-alone operation. “We created the joint See MUSSELS, page 7

Budget; from page 1 hiring of a new planner even though the money the county earns from building fees and land use decisions are budgeted to decline by $69,000. Price Johnson said the new planner came from a recent performance audit completed by the state, because the department is being restructured and staff reviews of such documents as the comprehensive plan and shoreline master plan. Emerson voted against all of the proposals. She said she sees revenue problems in

the budget and the commissioners needs to stop raising fees and taxes. The county will have a revenue problem if it keeps pushing families, businesses and investors off the island. Homola defended the recently instituted Clean Water Utility, which provided money for a hydrogeologist. While the commissioners approved a balanced budget Monday, Marlow warned that given current trends it will be difficult to approve a balanced budget by 2016.

Property taxes to rise slightly

Penn Cove Shellfish employee Jessie Broderson seals and labels boxes filled with Penn Cove mussels, getting them ready to be loaded into refrigerated trucks for the trip to SeaTac International Airport. Mussels can be on diners’ plates in restaurants in New York and elsewhere within 24 hours of being harvested from Penn Cove waters.

Mussels: Clean water a must; from page 6 venture with Coast Seafoods to get access to its shellfish hatchery in Quilcene in order to grow the Mediterranean mussels and to be able distribute some of their other products, including Kumamoto oysters and Manila clams,” Jefferds said. The company now employs about 65, some working at the Quilcene hatchery and others working at Everest Marine & Equipment, the company’s boat-building and repair operation in Burlington. But most of the employees – as many as 50 – work in Coupeville, either on the platforms or at the company expansive new warehouse and distribution center off Sherman Road. Its total employment ranks it as Island County’s 16th largest private

employer, according to the Island County Economic Development Council. Jefferds estimates that 75 percent of his 2013 harvest is threatened by loss of the initial seeding last June. If he loses much of his Penn Cove mussel harvest, he will be heavily dependent on the Mediterranean mussels hatched at the Quilcene hatchery. And if his harvest is diminished next year, he knows that strong competitors, especially Canadian mussel farmers from Prince Edward Island, can easily fill any void in the market. Prince Edward Island is by far North America’s largest mussel producer, harvesting more than 35 million pounds a year. He is currently preparing a claim to recover some of

his Deep Sea losses through the National Pollution Funds Center, an agency of the Coast Guard funded through a tax on oil products. But even if the claim is successful, he would be able to recover only the profit lost from harvesting that didn’t happen during the Deep Sea fire and sinking. One thing he deeply appreciates, however, is how much the local community has supported the mussel farm throughout the Deep Sea affair. “We’re lucky to be able to farm here because we’re able to grow a good crop in a nice area that’s dependent on clean water,” Jefferds said. “I think when this happened, everybody realized how important clean water is to our operation, and it probably

caused some reflection on a lot of people’s part about how important it is to their own interests as well. We’re all in the same boat. We remain grateful for all those who supported us during the spill crisis and want to express our thanks again.” Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard added: “When you have an environmentally sensitive operation like Penn Cove Shellfish that has operated so responsibly for so many years, it makes all of us more sensitive to the need to protect our resources. “When something like the Deep Sea happens, it tells us how fragile our environment is and how easy it is to lose something like Penn Cove Shellfish that has become so much a part of us.”

Island County property owners will see a slight bump in their property taxes in the coming year. In addition to approving the budget, the threemember Board of Island County Commissioners also approved a 1 percent tax increase to the county’s current expense levy, county roads levy and Conservation Futures Funds. During a Monday evening public hearing, Commissioners Helen Price Johnson and Angie Homola voted for the increases while Commissioner Kelly Emerson voted against the increase. The increases will bring in an additional $163,274 to the county’s $67 million budget. The current expense levy would get an additional $76,402, county roads would get an additional $80,170 and the Conservation Futures Fund would receive an additional $3,702. During the public hearing, Homola lamented the voter approved initiative in 2002 that capped property tax increases at 1 percent unless otherwise approved by a vote of the people. “We’ve been unable to follow the inflationary rate for 11 years,” Homola said.
