HR County Plans To Do Charter Review

Hood River County will be embarking on a review of its charter in the near future.  County Commission Chair Mike Oates says the charter itself calls for a review every ten years, and the County has just passed that mark.  Oates says it’s not a complicated document to go through.  He expects a committee of eight to ten people will be put together to go through the charter, and perhaps compare it to similar counties.  In other business, the County announced it will hold the public hearing next week on the two proposed revenue measures the Commission is planning to place on the May 21 ballot at the Wy’east Middle School Performing Arts Center in Odell.  It will take place next Monday night (March 18) at 6 p.m.
