BLACK BUTTE RANCH, OR -- Black Butte Ranch residents will vote this May on whether to approve another five year levy to fund police services.  Back in 2010, voters approved a 55-cent per one thousand dollars of assessed value levy.  It expires in June.  They will be asking for an exension of that same tax rate.

 

Curtiss Abbott, the chair of the Black Butte Ranch Police Board spoke to Deschutes County Commissioners Wednesday, "We're just ending a five year levy 55-cents and we managed with the Chief's good work to come in under budget most fo the time, so we're asking for a continuation of the 55-cents."

 

The election is scheduled for May 19th.  Currently, Black Butte has 24/7 police patrols, but if the levy fails, there would be a reduction in those hours.
