BALLOT MEASURE INFORMATION
We support all of the levies proposed in this election. These levies will not increase your property tax rate. For a full description of each ballot measures Click Here for the Josephine County Voter Information Pamphlet
EVERY JOSEPHINE COUNTY RESIDENT WILL HAVE THE FOLLOWING TWO MEASURES ON THEIR BALLOT:
Measure 17-102 Renew Adult Jail, Juvenile Detention Five-Year Local Option Tax: The Josephine County Jail and Juvenile Detention levy is important for maintaining our juvenile detention services and current inmate capacities, but also for continuing to allow intake of inmates in both facilities and covering administrative costs.
Measure 17-103 Animal Shelter and Control Five-Year Local Option Tax: The Animal Shelter levy is critical in ensuring the shelter can continue to provide adoption, food, care, medical treatment, and temporary shelter to impounded animals. The Animal Shelter also is active in investigating animal abuse, abandonment, and dangerous animals in the county.
DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE, YOU MAY HAVE ONE OF THESE TWO LEVIES ON YOUR BALLOT AS WELL:
Illinois Valley Rural Fire Protection District:
Williams Rural Fire Protection District:
Both fire district levies fund paid firefighters. As our climate gets hotter and fires are more frequent and catastrophic, and as our numbers of auto accidents and medical emergencies increase, these brave firefighters defend and rescue our citizens and our homes. We cannot afford to cut back on them!
Make sure to support all levies this election by voting YES and encouraging your friends to do so as well.
