At their meeting Monday, county commissioners heard from  local law enforcement saying they  support  the measure.


It will extend the current .23 cent levy per one thousand dollars in assessed property value for another five years.


Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says passage of this measure is priority number one.


"In my opinion, you can talk about education, you can talk about public safety.  But 9-1-1  and how the initail calls is handled is the foundation of all our public safety.  Whether fire, police or ambulance.  If this doens't pass, I don't know what we'll do."


Voters will decide the levy issue on May 21st.
