The Deschutes County Commissioners decided to go ahead with a May ballot measure, asking for temporary funding for the 911 District.

 

Funding for Deschutes County's 911 District expires in June, so Rob Porier,  the head of the department asked for a renewal of the temporary levy.

 

“My recommendation to the Board of Commissioners is to allow the levy go ahead and pursue a five year local tax for another five years.  It would be the same .23 cents per $1,000 currently operate with.  No increase whatsoever.”

 

Currently taxpayers pay 39 cents per $1000 in assessed property value. 16 cents is a permanent levy, 23 cents is the temporary levy.  Both levies are needed to fund the department.

 

Last May a permanent tax rate of 39 cents was voted down by voters. 

 

If the temporary levy isn't renewed, it's possible fire and police department would have to charge user fees.
