Levy May be Blueprint for Other Counties

EUGENE, Ore. — The recently approved public safety levy may prove as a blueprint for other Oregon counties struggling with funding.

Lane County was the only county to approve a public safety levy last week. A commissioner says extensive polling helped the commission craft a levy that earned enough support to pass.

Voters in two southern Oregon counties rejected levies. Commissioners say they’re considering going back to the ballot in the coming months.

The loss of federal timber subsidies has left the counties with bare-bones jails and police services.

    When you have 30 plus % of voter’s voting how can you call that a blueprint for other counties. You should not even count a vote unless 50% of the people vote. Lib Ta*ds won on a faulty vote..
