Klamath County: Museum Tax

museumKLAMATH FALLS, Ore.– Museums in Klamath County are looking to voters for a boost to continue operations. Measure 18-95 renews the current five-cent tax per $1,000 accessed property value for five years.

Typically signatures must be gathered to get taxes and levies placed on a ballot. County commissioners made an exception for the museum levy because it is a renewal of a current levy.

Here are the current results:

YES: 63.10% with 8,990 votes

NO: 36.90% with 5,258 votes
