The Seattle City Council quickly and unanimously approved on Monday (Dec. 15) a so-called “placeholder” resolution that could result in a vote by residents of the North Highline Unincorporated Area as to whether or not to be annexed to Seattle.
Council President Tim Burgess said it was a placeholder resolution because action was needed before the end of 2014 to safeguard the city’s access to a potential $5 million per year sales tax credit. That credit will expire on Dec. 31. The Seattle action means the city will retain access for the credit since it took action prior to the law’s expiration.
