One Jefferson County Levy Passes, Other Fails

MADRAS, OR -- The Madras Aquatic Center will continue to receive steady funding. More than 68% of voters approved the five-year operating levy, in Tuesday's special election. The measure continues the current property tax rate of 40-cents per thousand dollars of assessed value. MAC Director Joe McHaney has said the funding was necessary to maintain current athletic and recreation programs.

 

in Crooked River Ranch, Jefferson County voters overwhelmingly defeated a measure to increase Sheriff’s Office patrols, Tuesday night. Only 14% voted for the formation of an enhanced law enforcement district, which would have raised property taxes for residents.
