HR County Budget Committee Holds First Meeting After Levy Passage

The Hood River County Budget Committee met on Wednesday, one day after voters in the County approved a five-year, 78-cents-per-thousand dollars of assessed property value local option levy for public safety.  County Administrator Jeff Hecksel says the committee gave direction to have staff go back through the budget and add back in items that would have been eliminated had the levy failed and adding some things that were included in the levy.  Hecksel noted impacts of the pandemic have the potential to change some aspects of the budget, but he doesn’t expect that would be significant.  The budget committee’s next meeting will be May 29.
