AGO 1951 NO. 146 >

When the amount of the mandatory one mill levy prescribed by chapter 72, Laws of 1951 (RCW 41.16.060), together with the other estimated income, is insufficient to meet the estimated requirements of a city's firemen's pension fund, the city is authorized to levy an additional tax not to exceed one mill, to meet such estimated requirements.  Such additional one mill may exceed the city fifteen mill levy limit, thereby making a total maximum city levy of sixteen mills for all purposes.
