Jackson County libraries: Special district could bring in $9 mil

A proposed special district to fund Jackson County Library Services could bring in an estimated $9 million a year, according to Ryan Pfeil reporting for the Medford Mail Tribune. The district would eliminate a need for county general fund support and bring library hours back to pre-shutdown levels.

“The district would tax Jackson County homeowners up to 60 cents per $1,000 of assessed value on their homes if passed. That’s $120 a year on a $200,000 home. But that rate could be adjusted, depending on how many cities approve of putting the issue before their voters.”
