正规靠谱赌博软件, 华盛顿 is experiencing an economic transition that deeply impacts County government. Over 85% of the County’s total acreage is covered by public forest lands. The dwindling timber harvest and decline in federal timber payments have threatened 正规靠谱赌博软件’s fiscal stability. Meanwhile, other units of government in the county – school districts, cities, etc. – are also facing tight financial constraints. Perhaps more than any other timber dependent county in the Pacific Northwest, 正规靠谱赌博软件’s option for handling this transition are limited. 10个多一点,000 residents and about 5% of the county land in taxable private ownership, traditional tax sources can’t provide enough to fill the gap.
