The Thurston Conservation District Board of Supervisors is looking for your input on a proposed Ordinance to implement a system of Rates & Charges that would re-establish our public funding structure for collection in 2019-2023. This charge would be up to $5 per parcel and $0.10/acre depending on land-use type and is collected annually via property taxes. This charge would be for those portions of Unincorporated Thurston County, the Municipalities of Olympia, Lacey, and Tumwater and those portions of the Municipalities of Tenino, Rainier, and Yelm that are within the Thurston Conservation District boundaries. This funding covers technical assistance, landowner and youth education, and over all administration funding for Thurston CD.

Thurston CD is pleased to have been serving Thurston County since 1947, and we look forward to your continued support and partnership. Please provide public comment on this proposed Ordinance. Written comments received by Friday, May 18th at 4:30pm will also be considered. Please send written comments to Thurston CD Offices (2918 Ferguson St. SW Tumwater, 98512) or email to smoorehead@thurstoncd.com.

Find more information about Rates & Charges here.
