Washoe County Considering Raising Property Taxes For Flood Control Projects

Washoe County commissioners will soon decide whether to introduce a November ballot initiative raising property taxes to pay for flood management projects. 

A committee approved ballot question language on Thursday. 

The Truckee River Flood Control Project Needs Committee estimates the increase would raise about $400 million, which could potentially secure an additional $182 million in federal funding.
