MEDFORD Ore. — Supporters of the Jackson County Extension Service are hoping to convince county commissioners to put a tax district on the ballot to help fund the programs.
Department heads and supporters of the extension service will meet with commissioners for a work session Tuesday morning. They’re hoping to convince the board to put an item on the May 2014 ballot creating an extension tax district to help the program make up for recent budget cuts.
The extension service runs programs like Master Gardeners and 4-H. Supporters of the service have already been gathering signatures to put the item on the ballot.
