Jackson County: Rogue River Fire Levy

fire truckROGUE RIVER, Ore.– The Rogue River Fire Department is looking to replace equipment and make upgrades to the fire station.

To do this, the county is asking voters to approve a 25-cent per $1,000 of assessed property value this May. Measure 12-123 would increase property taxes for three years.

A 20 year capital improvement bond that was established in 1994, is set to expire this August. This measure proposes a local option levy at the same rate to replace that bond.

These are the results so far:

YES: 64% with 1,244 votes

NO: 36% with 717 votes
