Home arrow News arrow Local News arrow WALLOWA COUNTY OKS TWO TAX LEVIES



ENTERPRISE — At a special meeting Thursday, the Wallowa County Board of Commissioners voted to put two tax levy proposals on the Nov. 5 ballot.

One would be a 5-year levy of 19 cents per $1,000 of property value for noxious weed control.

The other is a proposed 35.99 cent permanent tax rate to form a Wallowa County Parks and Recreation District.

The commission was petitioned by 871 people to place the park levy on the ballot. Of those, 749 were certified as valid by the county clerk, exceeding the 676 requirement.

Wallowa County has been without a public swimming pool for two seasons, since the one in Enterprise closed.

That is but one recreation issue to be addressed by a committee to be elected on the same Nov. 5 ballot, if voters approve the levy.

The proposed levy for a weed program was requested by the Wallowa County Weed Board. It hopes to generate $85,000 annually to fund a complete weed management package. It would include a vegetation manager, which the county has not had since Dan Sherwin recently accepted a position in Deschuttes County.

Officials said funding is not adequate to control the invasion of noxious weeds, described in the election notice as "one of the most serious environmental and economic threats to Wallowa County."

Wallowa County Assessor Gay Fregulia estimates there will still be room for these levies within the $10 per $1,000 tax limit. The two highest rates of general government taxes are those of the cities of Enterprise at $8.91 and Wallowa at $7.86.
