NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF BALLOT TITLE

Notice is hereby given that a ballot title for a measure referred by Brownly-Marshall Road District was filed with the Benton County Clerk on August 4, 2020.  The ballot measure will appear on the November 3, 2020 Election ballot.

The Ballot Title caption, question and summary follow:

Renew of Local Option Tax for Operations

Shall the district renew $0.20 per $1000 of assessed value tax for general operations for five years beginning 2021-2022?

Passage of this local option tax will allow the Brownly-Marshall Road District to continue to provide road maintenance and repair at approximately the same level of service as previous years.  If the measure does not pass maintenance and repair services will be reduced, primarily by reducing dust control.

The district currently has a permanent tax rate limit of $0.9301 per $1000 of assessed value and a local option tax of $0.20 per $1000 of assessed value which expires at the end of the 2020-2021 fiscal year.  This renewal would continue the local option levy of $0.20 per $1000 of assessed value through the 2025-2026 fiscal year.

At the maximum rate, the levy will raise approximately $2140 in 2021-2022, $2204 in 2022-2023, $2270 in 2023-2024, $2338 in 2024-2025, and $2408 in 2025-2026 for a total of $11,360.

As indicated by ORS 250.195, an elector may file petition for review of this ballot title in Benton County Circuit Court no later than 5:00 PM on August 13, 2020.
