Voters approving levy to rebuild Youth Services Center

By a slim margin, King County voters were saying yes to a $210 million, nine-year property tax levy to substantially rebuild the aging Youth Services Center.

In early returns, the levy was leading by nearly  53 percent to 47 percent.

The levy would modernize the center’s courtrooms, offices and detention center, some of which date to 1952. It also would update failing heating, cooling and electrical systems.

A proposal to rebuild the center with a sales-tax increase was defeated by voters in 2010. The measure has the support of King County Executive Dow Constantine, Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg, former U.S. Attorney John McKay and all nine Metropolitan King County Council members.

If approved, the levy would cost the owner of a $360,000 home about $25 a year.
