SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Springfield voters voted for the extension of a public safety levy to help pay for police and jail services.
The money raised from the measure, which is basically an extension of the levy passed in 2006, will help pay for police and jail services.
On average, homeowners will pay an extra $40 in addition to the $160 starting next year.
That levy passed, 55 to 44 percent. Police Chief Jerry Smith joined KEZI 9 News This Morning to talk about what this means for the City of Springfield.
