Harborview bond proposal on ballot

The King County Council voted 11 to 1 on July 10 to place a $193 million capital bond proposal for Harborview Medical Center on the Sept. 19 primary election ballot. If passed, the proposal will fund improvements to safeguard Harborview in the event of a major local earthquake. According to seismic experts, older portions of Harborview would not withstand a major earthquake.

The funds generated by a bond issue would be combined with $72.1 million of interest income, capital funds and other revenues for a total of $263.3 million.
