HR County Schedules February 21 Meeting On Tax Measures

Hood River County Commissioners have scheduled a public information meeting on Thursday, February 21 to discuss the County’s plans to put a pair of tax measures.  The Commission is planning to place both a five percent prepared food and beverage tax and five-year property tax levy at 89 cents per thousand dollars of assessed value.  County Administrator Jeff Hecksel says they will use the same drop-in format they used for a pair of meetings earlier in the process.  The meeting will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on February 21 at the Hood River Valley High School commons.
