Jefferson: Agencies discuss investment fund program

PORT TOWNSEND — Elected officials from four governments in Jefferson County discussed setting up a community investment fund Wednesday to provide money for sewers, streets, water lines and other infrastructure to aid economic growth.

The county has received more than $480,000 since the Legislature instituted a distressed county sales tax in 1997.

The state currently returns 0.08 percent of sales tax receipts to the county for improvements.

So far, the money has just been sitting in the bank.
