Stanwood: District meets about funding

The Snohomish Conservation District plans to host a public meeting from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Stanwood PUD building, 9124 271st St. NW.

During the meeting, district officials plan to present a proposal for a tax that would raise money to fund district services in 2009. The proposed $5 tax would apply to almost every property in Snohomish County.

The Snohomish County Council is scheduled to vote on the proposal later this year.

The district runs programs to restore the health of streams and replace clogged culverts for better fish migration. The group also teaches backyard conservation and works with farmers on voluntary plans that manage manure and grazing.
