As a Hospital District member, the additional cost to you and your family will be minimal. When you use hospital services you can have a credit to your portion of the bill equal to the taxed amount.
If you own a home with a tax assessed value of $300,000 you will pay less than $10 per month — and that’s for your whole family. A home worth twice that would be less than $20 per month. It’s a small price to pay for a facility that will serve us for generations to come!
Your $10 per month will support a bond of $20 million. The Hospital and its Foundation will contribute an additional $24.5 million (through loans and savings) to reach a total New Hospital cost of $44.5 million. That’s a lot of money. If we had passed the levy two years ago the price would have been $33 million. The price will keep going up, and that’s a really good reason to support our hospital this time around. We can’t afford to wait
The levy will only impact people who pay property tax; 55% of the revenue will come from seasonal residents. The assessment is projected to be $0.38 per $1,000 assessed property value per year. There’s a button on the home page to calculate your exact amount of increased tax. The calculation is based on the County Assessor’s valuation of the property, not the real market [resale] value. Here’s a chart:
