The two measures would fund fire facilities and transportation improvements.
The Bellevue City Council Monday night unanimously approved putting two property-tax measures on the November ballot.
The first would fund upgrades to fire stations, including seismic retrofits, and build a new downtown station. The second would fund transportation improvements in the city, including projects to reduce neighborhood congestion, improve sidewalks and create a safe and connected bike network.
The fire-facilities measure would increase property taxes by 12.5 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, or $80 a year for the median-priced home of $640,000. The transportation-improvements measure would cost 15 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, or $96 per year.
The city held three open houses in late June on the proposals and conducted on online survey that showed support of more than 60 percent for each of the proposals, according to city officials.
