HR County Commission Holds Tax Measure Hearing Monday At Wy’east
Hood River County Commissioners will hold a public hearing Monday evening on the proposed tax measures they plan to put on the May ballot. The County has put together a five percent prepared food and beverage tax and a five-year property tax option levy of 89-cents per thousand dollars of assessed value. Commission Chair Mike Oates points out the 89 cents is a maximum, and the Commission could opt to lower it or not levy it all if they find it is not necessary during any given fiscal year that is in effect. The hearing will be Monday at 6 p.m. in the Wy’east Middle School Performing Arts Center in Odell.
