HR County Commission Asks For Details On Food/Beverage Tax & Local Option

The Hood River County Commission asked its staff to do further work on proposals for a prepared food and beverage tax and a local option levy for either public safety or general county operations at its latest worksession on trying to develop a sustainable fiscal plan.  Commissioners analyzed information gathered during recent public workshops on the County’s budget situation.  County Administrator Jeff Hecksel says staff will get more detailed figures on the two identified possibilities as soon as possible, hopefully in time for the Commission’s next meeting on December 17.  The Commission did not ask for further study of a general sales tax or a capital levy, effectively taking those options off the table.
