    MINT Operations Result In Drug Arrests

    Did you know that the Columbia River Gorge receives millions of visitors each year, but the county has no mechanism for recovering costs incurred while providing services to those visitors? With more than 99% of Search & Rescue calls coming from visitors to our county, HRCSO deputies are routinely diverted away from patrol duties in order to provide SAR services pursuant to state law. Under the budget proposal for the next fiscal year, cuts are proposed that would likely mean a decrease in HRCSO Patrol positions, leading to a likely reduction in 24 hour patrol services, Investigation operations, and possibly the School Resource Deputy position. As many of you may know, the Hood River County Board of Commissioners has referred two proposed funding measures to be placed on the May 21st ballot. If approved, these measures would create funding for Public Safety and Public Health services. A proposed Local Operating Levy of $0.89 per $1,000 of assessed property value will be on the ballot, as will a proposed 5% Prepared Food & Beverage Tax. If the measures were approved, current positions and services would be retained and deputy positions would be added to Patrol, Recreation Response, Animal Control and Courthouse Security. If the measures do not pass, the tax assessments would not be made, and county services would be reduced. This information was reviewed by the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office for compliance with ORS 260.432.
