Hello AKCHO member and heritage supporter!
You may have read in this month's Heritage Advisor about the King County
Historic Preservation and Historical Programs Advisory Task Force and its
interim recommendations to the King County Council . The recommendations
focus on the distribution of document filing fee revenue under RCW
32.22.170, also called HB 1386. On Monday, Nov. 2, the AKCHO Board of
Directors agreed to send a letter of support for the report's
recommendations to the Council.
The AKCHO board asks that you review the report and express your views to
your County Councilmember as soon as possible. The council is currently in
budget deliberations and is scheduled to publish its final budget on Nov.
23. It's extremely important that you write to your council members this
week. If the Council adopts the recommendations, as much as $550,000 in new
funds may become available for historic preservation, historical programs,
and preservation of historical documents in King County.

The Task Force resumes its deliberations later this month in preparation for
its long-term report, which is due March 1, 2010. AKCHO will monitor the
progress of the Task Force and submit reports in Heritage Advisor and by
email as developments warrant.
Thank you for your ongoing support of King County preservation and heritage
AKCHO Board of Directors
