Clackamas County voters likely to decide Sellwood Bridge fee; rejection could doom project

To all COLA LO Members,

It looks like the Sellwod bridge fee (tax) will now go before the voters according to the Oregonian. The County commission voted for the fee despite overwhelming public testimony against it late last year.   

Now the voters may decide in the May election. Take a look at the report in the Oregonian. Rejection of the hidden tax may doom the project and force Multnomah county to pay for its own bridges.

Will the county voters reject a hidden tax that transfer the money to Multnomah County? Only a vote of the people will tell. County Commissioners were not willing to refer it to the voters.   

Please notify all members and contacts.
