STATE MEASURES

2014 State Measures.pdf

COUNTY MEASURES

MORATORIUM ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA FACILITIES
Measure 4-174

Question:
Should Ordinance 2014-2 imposing a moratorium on medical marijuana facilities be rescinded?

Summary: The Board of Commissioners of Clatsop County, in Ordinance 2014-2, imposed a moratorium on medical marijuana facilities. This prohibits operation of any medical marijuana facility in the unincorporated area of the County. The moratorium is in effect until May 1, 2015 unless rescinded sooner. Ordinance 2014-07 would rescind Ordinance 2014-2 effective on passage.

CITY MEASURES

CITY OF CANNON BEACH
Measure 4-175

Question:
Shall the City of Cannon Beach join the Clatsop County 4H and Extension Service Special District?

Summary: In 1986 Clatsop County voters, voted to establish a Special Service District to support the delivery of local educational programs through the Oregon State University Extension Service. The citizens of the City of Cannon Beach voted to not be included in the Special Service District. Since 1986, no District funded programs have been delivered within the City of Cannon Beach. This measure offers residents of Cannon Beach the opportunity to join the 4H and Extension Special Service District which would allow the District to fund programs delivered within the City of Cannon Beach.

Membership in the District allows local delivery of OSU Extension educational programs including 4H Youth Clubs, Master Gardener events, Family Food and Nutrition classes, and Coastal Hazards education among others. Programming is guided by a local advisory board. If this measure is approved, the established tax rate of 0.0534 cents per thousand dollars of assessed value will be applied to properties in the City of Cannon Beach. A home assessed at $250,000 would pay $13.35 per year.

DISTRICT MEASURES

WARRENTON RURAL FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT
Measure 4-173

Question: Shall Warrenton Rural Fire Protection District impose $49,000 each year for five years for general operations beginning 2016-2017? This measure renews current local option taxes.

Summary:  This measure will renew an existing local option tax that will expire at the end of Fiscal Year 2015-16. The maximum taxes needed for five years total $245,000, which will be imposed in equal amounts of $49,000 each year. It may not be necessary to assess the full $49,000 each year, particularly in the first few years of the local option tax. In each year, the District will assess only the amount necessary to fund its operating cost, but will not exceed $49,000. The taxes will be used to fund the general operations of the Warrenton Rural Fire Protection District. The taxes are needed to pay for part of the costs of contractual services provided by the City of Warrenton; the District contracts with the City of Warrenton to provide fire protection and emergency medical services in the District. It is estimated that the proposed tax (maximum) will result in a rate of $0.53 per $1,000 of assessed value in the first year. The estimated tax cost for this measure is an ESTIMATE ONLY based on the best information available from the county assessor at the time of the estimate.

CLATSOP COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT
Measure 4-176

Question: Shall College increase safety, efficiency, add instructional space, redevelop facilities by issuing general obligation bonds not exceeding $8,200,000; audits required? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to the limits of Section 11 and 11b, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution.

Summary: If approved, this measure would provide funds for the redevelopment of Clatsop Community College District's 93-year old Patriot Hall including:

    * Make safety improvements, remove asbestos, improve seismic stability, and
       replace aging fire protection and electrical systems;

    * Construct, equip,, and furnish additional instructional space to support new job           training, paramedic training, mental and behavioral health and drug and alcohol         counseling certification programs;

    * Increase efficiency by replacing electrical and heating systems;

    * Restore the structure and provide ADA compliance;

    * Pay bond issuance costs.

Independent audits required for bond proceeds.

Approval would release a $7,990,000 match from the State of Oregon to help redevelop Patriot Hall.

Bonds would mature in a period not to exceed 21 years from the date of issue and may be issued in one or more series. The overall tax rate for bonds is estimated to be approximately $0.10 per $1,000 of assessed property value. Results may differ based on actual interest rates incurred and change in assessed property value.
