Deschutes County Commissioners will consider asking 3¢ less than earlier anticipated for the 911 Levy on the May ballot.

 

After a detailed analysis of how and when future funds would be used if the levy passes, officials testified to the Commission that their could operate with a lesser amount requested in the levy.

 

Interim County Administrator Tom Anderson says instead of 23¢ per one thousand dollars assessed value, the new rate would be 20¢.

 

"Frankly in response to some concern that have been raised by local citizens and the sheriffs office and City of Bend Police, and concluded that 20¢ per $1000, should be enough at least for the first few years of the 20¢ levy to be able to pay for operations."

 

The Commissioners will consider the change at the next meeting on Monday,  March 18th.

 

The 911 Local Option Levy will appear on the May 21st ballot.
