WENATCHEE — Chelan County commissioners Oct. 29 will discuss a proposal to impose a new tax on all county residents to raise some $605,000 annually for flood-control projects, such as water-retention ponds in No. 1 and No. 2 canyons.

State law allows the commission to create a flood-control district with taxing authority, without first putting it to voters, Commissioner Keith Goehner said. The county is considering a tax of 7 cents for each $1,000 of assessed property value.
