Oregon cities are pushing for a change in the state constitution to allow local option levies for longer periods and outside the existing limits on tax rates.
That is one of the legislative priorities identified by the League of Oregon Cities, and it’s on the agenda for a public discussion among legislators and others starting at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at Albany City Hall.
It’s part of what Oregon cities have designated as City Hall Week.
On August 9, 2012 the League of Oregon Cities Board of Directors approved the organization’s 2013 Legislative Priorities:
- Local control
- Changes to population forecasting
- Reset at sale
- Jobs and economic development
- 9-1-1 tax renewal
