COUNTY MEASURES

MEASURE 4-170

Bans bullhooks, electric prods, whips on performing elephants, felines, primates

Question: Shall use of bullhooks, electric prods, whips and other devices to physically injure elephants, felines and primates be prohibited?

Summary: This measure is for an ordinance that would prohibit using bullhooks, electric prods, whips and other devices to cause physical injury to elephants, felines and primates when they are being displayed, performing or being trained. "Physical injury" is defined in the ordinance as including causing substantial pain. The ordinance also defines the terms "bullhooks", "electric prods" and "whips". The ordinance would apply through-out Clatsop County except in the incorporated cities. Violation of the ordinance would be a Class B violation.

DISTRICT MEASURES

MEASURE 4-171

Cannon Beach Rural Fire Protection District General Obligation Bond

Question:
Shall the District issue general obligation bonds not exceeding $860,000? If the bonds are approved, they will be payable from taxes on property or property ownership that are not subject to limits of section 11 and 11b, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution.

Summary: If approved, this measure would provide funds for capital costs including:
* Purchasing and equipping public safety equipment and apparatus; and
* Pay bond issuance cost;
The Bonds would mature not later than ten (10 years) from date of issuance.
The measure is estimated to cost taxpayers an average of $0.0997 per $1,000 of assessed value each year.
For the owner of a home or property owner, the estimated annual average cost would be $9.97 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value.
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.

MEASURE 4-172

Five-year Local Option Tax for General Operations and Maintenance

Question:
Shall Gearhart Rural Fire Protection District impose $125,000 each year for five years to fund general operations beginning 2014-2015? This measure may cause property taxes to increase more than three percent.

Summary: This measure will impose a local option tax levy that will start in fiscal year 2014-2015. The measure will impose taxes of $125,000 each year for five years. The total amount of tax to be raised by this measure for the five years will be $625,000.

The District's current local option tax levy of $150,000 per year expires this fiscal year. This measure proposes to replace the current levy with a lower levy of $125,000 per year.

If approved, the taxes will be used to fund the general operations and maintenance of the Gearhart Rural Fire Protection District. The Fire District currently contracts with the City of Gearhart for fire protection and emergency medical services. Passage of this measure will allow the District to continue to contract with the City for fire protection and emergency medical service and maintain the current level of service.

It is estimated that the proposed measure will result in a tax rate of 0.3375 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.
