Learn all about the Kitsap County budget – new brochure available at Kitsap County libraries, county offices and website

PORT ORCHARD, WA — Did you know that if you live in Kitsap County, less than one-fourth of your property taxes actually go to the Kitsap County government? If you live in a city, it’s even less, with under ten percent going to the county. These and other facts about Kitsap County’s budget are in the new “2007 Budget Summary” brochure, an easy-to-read, full-color pamphlet that offers a comprehensive overview on the how, why and where Kitsap County tax dollars are spent.

“It’s really important for the citizens of Kitsap County to understand the budget and this brochure presents the facts in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner,” Kitsap County Commission Chair Chris Endresen said. “We’re working hard to inform and involve citizens in a meaningful way, and I feel this brochure will help shed light on the budget challenges facing Kitsap County.”
The budget brochure is being distributed to all Kitsap County Library branches, and it is also available at all county offices, on the county website at, or you can request a copy by calling (360) 337-7150.
