HR County Looking To Establish Distribution Of Construction Excise Tax

A group of Hood River County Commissioners, staff, and a member of the public will meet next week to try to determine a formula to distribute funds generated by a new one percent construction excise tax to assist in development of affordable housing.  Commission Chair Ron Rivers says half of the revenue generated by the tax is mandated to go directly to affordable housing, but the rest is a little more flexible involving the two types of construction the tax applies to, residential and commercial construction.  The group recommendation will go to the County Commission for consideration at the panel’s meeting in May.
