MADRAS, OR -- It’s election day, and Jefferson County voters have two tax levies on the ballot. 


The first would renew funding for the Madras Aquatic Center. The original five-year operating levy was narrowly approved in 2013. MAC Executive Director Joe McHaney says the money allowed for exponential growth in both programs and participants. If approved, the levy would continue the current property tax rate for another five years. 


Residents in the Jefferson County portion of Crooked River Ranch will also decide whether to fund an increased law enforcement presence. The "Enhanced Services" measure would fund patrols by two Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputies dedicated to the Ranch.
Crook and Deschutes counties do not have ballot measures this election.
