Spokane Library Levy, Proposition 3 (Feb. 12, 2013)

Proposition 3 is a levy lid lift that would increase property taxes by 7 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. (That’s $7 for a $100,000 property.) The tax would be used to prevent the closure of branch libraries and likely will be used to also increase hours at the city’s three neighborhood library branches from 22 1/2 hours a week to 40 hours a week.
