WATCH: Virtual Tour of Kent Police Department
Income tax issue on November ballot would pay for construction of new police station
The Kent Police Department has posted multiple videos of inside the police station to give residents a virtual tour of the aging building.
Voters will decide in November whether to raise the city's income tax rate to build a new police station.
The proposed income tax increase of 0.25 percent would increase Kent's tax rate to 2.25 percent. The roughly $1.3 million generated each year by the tax increase would be used for property acquisition, design, construction, maintenance and repairs, future expansion or replacement of a new police building.
The total estimate for replacing the aging police station is $18.36 million.
