To raise or to not raise the cap? That is the question before Sitka voters today (10-04-16). Proposition 1 asks if Sitka should raise the local limit on property taxes from 6 mills to 8 mills. If the ballot question passes, $1 million of that money would go towards the Electric Fund to help pay off the Blue Lake Dam.
Last Thursday (09-22-16), Raven Radio hosted a live, call-in show devoted to Proposition 1. That's the question on the ballot which asks if Sitka should raise the cap - basically the limit - on local property taxes by two mills. 2 mills = $2 for every $1000 your property is valued. Listen to how four Sitkans plan to vote.
