Clallam: County commissioners to hear pros, cons on property tax proposal today

PORT ANGELES –Clallam County commissioners say a Planning Commission recommendation that gives tax breaks to some landowners who conserve their acreage for farmland might be unfair.

The Board of Commissioners will discuss today the proposal to force landowners who own less than 3.2 acres to subsidize property tax breaks for residents who own more acreage and promise to preserve their land as farmland.

The work session is scheduled for 10 a.m. in Room 120 of the County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.
