The Tukwila Pool Metropolitan Park District (TPMPD) is a Special Purpose District. It is funded by Tukwila residents and businesses through property taxes for the sole purpose of providing a community swimming pool.
The Tukwila Pool Metropolitan Park District is governed by an elected five-member Board of Commissioners. The commissioners oversee the swimming pool on behalf of the taxpayers. This includes ensuring public funds are managed responsibly.
This year, the citizens of Tukwila will be able to elect two members of the community for Board of Commissioner Positions No. 3 and No. 4. Candidates must be registered to vote in King County and a resident of Tukwila.
