The Coos County TEA Party is having a Meet & Greet with Dave Hunnicutt on January 23rd, 2012 at noon in the North Bend Library.
Mr. Hunnicutt is from Oregonians in Action and will be speaking to us about a new initiative that we are going to be sponsoring here in Coos County.
This measure will help taxpayers control the growth of Urban Renewal in the county. If you are interested please attend, everyone is invited.
Here is the tentative wording of the bill FYI….
SUMMARY: This measure amends the County Code to require voter approval to create an urban renewal agency. The measure also requires voter approval when an urban renewal agency seeks to authorize the exercise of additional powers. The measure amends the County Code to require voter approval to establish a new urban renewal plan or to substantially change an existing plan. The County is required to provide public notice when an election will authorize new Urban Renewal Indebtedness. Any approval or amendment to an urban renewal plan by the county must be done by ordinance. The retirement of all previously authorized urban renewal indebtedness will result in the termination of the urban renewal agency. Any continuing obligations or rights of the terminated agency will be assumed by the county. If passed, this chapter will be immediately effective.
