The Deschutes County 911 Executive Board wants to continue with its temporary levels for another year, before requesting permanent funding again. The voters rejected a request for permanent levy during the May election. 911 Board Chair Tim Moor says they decided to wait and do a better job of informing the public on why the levy is needed. “I'm very positive by buying ourselves some time and going back out in 2014. We’re taking the time to do it right; getting out in community, with yard signs. Doing focused presentations with service groups, more grassroots. I think it will be critical part of education process.” Moor says they plan to ask for another temporary levy next year and then request permanent funding again for the district in 2014.
