Oregon’s mayors are telling state lawmakers they need space, or rather freedom from state tax codes set in the mid-90's that limit their cities' abilities to re-set assessed value of properties to reflect growth in the economy. George Endicott, President of the League of Oregon Cities says property taxes have, essentially, remained stagnant because of Measure Five. Endicott, Mayor of Redmond in Central Oregon, says cities must still provide services and their costs change with inflation - that's why they need more room to call for local option levies and tax codes changes. They’re trying to convince lawmakers to put the topic on the Oregon ballot.
