Measure 17-69 goes toward RCC improvements

Medford, Ore.–A $20 million bond levy to improve Rogue Community College facilities is in the hands of voters. RCC is asking for the approval of measure 17-69.

If approved, the measure would give the community college $20 million towards improving, expanding and renovating facilities for students.  Property owners would pay approximately 5 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.  For a $200,000 home, that’s $10 a year.

RCC President Dr. Peter Angstadt hopes voters will see the levy as an investment in their community.

“We have students who with the right training can get some great paying jobs and we have employers that are desperately seeking people with a specific set of skills and training,” Angstadt said.

The bond levy will be district wide, meaning the funds would be used at campuses in both Jackson and Josephine counties.
