HR County Won’t Put Sales Tax On Ballot

Hood River County Commissioners decided they won’t put a proposed two percent sales tax measure to voters in May.  The County heard more testimony on the subject in front of a standing room only gathering Tuesday evening at the Hood River Valley Adult Center.  County officials are dealing with a projected one-point-six million dollar shortfall in their 2018-19 budget.  Commission Chair Ron Rivers said he felt the panel had their work cut out for them, but also felt after hearing input from the public, the community will be there for them.  Rivers noted the Commission has decided to have a worksession the first Monday of every month devoted to discussing potential budget problems and solutions.  Rivers says the Commission still wants to present some kind of solution for voters in November, but they need more time and community involvement.
