A recent letter to the editor advocating passage of the levy for King County Parks implied that all of the parks listed were in the King County system. However, the pool, for example, is indeed a part of the Vashon Park District system and is funded by our own park district through the Vashon Park District levy on the property tax.
The levy for King County did pass, and that means funding continues for the County parks on the Magical Isle of Vashon. However, to continue funding for the pool, the Ober Park playground, and all of the other parks and programs provided by the Vashon Park District will require that we pass the levy on the November ballot. Therefore, I hasten to make it as clear as I can that the two systems are completely separate, are funded by the ratepayers by two different levies, and that our levy, the VPD levy, requires your vote, and then your aye vote, in order to continue.
