STATEMENT OF FACTS:
1. In 2005, Ordinance 15279 placed a six-year veterans and human services levy on the general election ballot. Ordinance 15279 provided for two citizen oversight boards to oversee and report on expenditures of veterans and human services levy proceeds. Voters approved the levy, enabling the creation of both boards. The veterans citizen oversight board was created to oversee funds for veterans and military servicemembers and their respective families. The regional human service board was created to oversee funds for a wide range of low-income people in need of such services.
2. In 2011, Ordinance 17072 placed a renewal of the veterans and human services levy on the primary election ballot, providing for continuation of the two oversight boards by incorporating the provision of Ordinance 15279 that created the veterans citizen oversight board and the regional human service board. Voters renewed the veterans and human services levy, effecting continuation of both boards.
3. In July 2017, the metropolitan King County council passed Ordinance 18555, placing a six-year veterans, seniors and human services levy ("VSHSL") on the ballot. On November 7, 2017, King County voters passed this measure with a sixty-eight percent approval. The approved ballot measure included a requirement for King County to create and prescribe the composition and duties of a board or boards to oversee the expenditure of VSHSL proceeds.
4. Section 6.A. of Attachment A to Ordinance 18722, which is the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy Governance Plan, requires the executive to transmit for council consideration and passage proposed legislation that would effectuate the plan.
