||Curry County's proposed discretionary resource budget of $2.1 million will not sustain County Law Enforcement Services.
This proposed 5 year local option tax provides funding for:
Dispatch, 911, Jail Operations, Criminal Investigations, Crime Prevention, Search & Rescue, Marine Patrol, Civil Process, Juvenile Detention Services, Drug Enforcement, Prevention and Education, Traffic Safety, School Resource Programs, Sheriff Patrols, Adult Parole and Probation, Wild Land Fire and Tsunami Evacuations, Emergency Services, Juvenile Probation, Adult and Juvenile Prosecution, Child Advocacy, Victims Assistance.
This measure proposes split rates. While the above law enforcement services benefit all residents, the taxpayers in Brookings, Gold Beach and Port Orford will pay a lower rate because cities fund police departments.
This proposed local option tax, dedicated to Curry County Law Enforcement Services is estimated to raise $4,524,962 in 2013-2014, $4,660,711 in 2014-2015, $4,800,532 in 2015-2016, 4,944,548 in 2016-2017, and $5,092,885 in 2017-2018.
The Board of Commissioners will reduce this tax in any year in which Federal Safety Net Related Payments are received.
