Commissioners said if the proposed justice levy passes in May. The Board of Commissioners will remove themselves from the internal service fund (ISF).
That means the money that’s going to commissioners right now would only go to departments that deal with operations.
Commissioners said the decision comes after listening to public input.
“This is not about the board of county commissioners getting another penny. This is about the service provided to the county. We’re going to move that department out of there for the sake of the feedback we’ve gotten from the past,” said Lily Morgan, Josephine County Commissioner.
The public safety levy would cost homeowners $0.93 per thousand dollars of a home’s assessed value.
