ROGUE 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
