Asotin County Public Facilities District

The Asotin County Public Facilities District was formed on July 15th, 2013 for the purpose of asking the voters of Asotin County to approve a 2/10 of 1 percent sales tax to be dedicated to the continued maintenance and operations of the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center. This ballot measure passed with over 66% voter approval. Asotin County will transfer ownership and operation of the Aquatic Center, including all materials equipment, and employees, to the PFD, however the County will retain the associated debt from 2 bonds issued to finance the construction of the center. The Asotin County Family Aquatic Center was opened in July 2004 and has suffered significant budget shortfalls since it began operating. In 2007 the County Commissioners passed a 3/10 of 1 percent Local Option Sales Tax to fund the Aquatic Center, which the City of Clarkston opted in to. From 2008 to 2011 Clarkston provided funds from their share to assist with maintenance and operations of the Aquatic Center, however in 2012 the City elected to apply those funds elsewhere leaving the Aquatic Center operating at a loss. The County continues to dedicate it’s share of the 3/10 of 1 percent local option sales tax towards the center, however this has proven to be insufficient for continued operations. The Asotin County Family Aquatic Center is an indoor/outdoor aquatics center with lap swimming, water exercise, a wave pool, lazy river and three water slides, additionally the facility has a fitness center, and medium sized meeting rooms. The center serves the population of the Lewis-Clark Valley including Clarkston, Asotin, and Anatone Washington, as well as Lewiston and Lapwai Idaho. Read More...

Clark County Public Facilities District

The Clark County Public Facilities District (PFD) was formed on July 30, 2002. The purpose of the PFD is to fund two projects of regional significance, the Master Plan for the Clark County Fairgrounds (which to date has funded the new Events Center) and the downtown Vancouver Convention Center. As with other PFDs in Washington, the Clark County PFD retains 0.033 percent of the state sales tax that is generated by retail sales within the county to help pay for these two local projects. Because this is a “credit” that is retained by the PFD from the state’s portion of the sales tax, the total sales tax amount paid by consumers is not increased. The retained credit generates approximately $750,000 annually. Of that amount, 97% is dedicated to the Vancouver Convention Center by interlocal agreement. Read More...
