HR County To Hold Tuesday Hearing On Levy Measure
Hood River County Commissioners will hold a public hearing Tuesday evening on the proposed public safety levy the Commission plans to put on the May ballot. It is a near-given that the Commission will place the five-year levy of 78-cents-per-thousand dollars of assessed property value on the ballot in a second attempt to address the County’s budget shortfalls. Commission Chair Mike Oates says input he has received so far has left him with a positive feeling about this measure. The public hearing is at 6 p.m. on Tuesday. The Commission need to approve the measure so it can be filed to be placed on the May ballot.
