HR County Worksession Looks To Set Levy Plans

The Hood River County Commission is holding a worksession this afternoon as they try to reach consensus on a plan for seeking a public safety levy on the May ballot.  The 3:30 worksession in the County Administration Building is intended to develop a final rate and other details to allow County Administrator Jeff Hecksel to bring back a draft to vote on at the panel’s January 21 meeting.  The Commission has until later in February to file a measure for the ballot, but Hecksel said the board’s February session is just one day before that deadline, a major reason for wanting to finish this month.
