Gresham City Council to vote on ballot measure

When the Gresham City Council meets at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, at council chambers at 1331 N.W. Eastman Parkway, it will consider approving a resolution to adopt a ballot measure for a five-year, $1.25 per $1,000 assessed value property tax levy for police, fire and parks to be placed on the May 20 ballot.

The meeting’s agenda states that the measure, called the Long Term Revenue Roadmap, will have a large financial impact.

Revenue generated from the levy will equal the cost of “about 19 police officers, the equivalent of nearly two fire/EMS stations, along with holding the line on basic park maintenance.”
