    From the article
    There is this little shimmer out there of some giant Santa that is going to come and drop all this money on us because we are well-meaning folks,” he said. “The sleigh is broken, the deer are dead, it’s not going to happen. We have to figure out how we are going to solve this problem.”
    I think the citizens have it figured out.

    At the first sign of trouble in a county, city or any form of government. They start by saying the have to cut police, fire and necessary services. They want the people scared so that they vote yes on the tax hikes......
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    My farm property taxes have increased four-fold in the last four years. No vote, no appeals process, no recourse. Rest assured the levels of service haven't kept pace. Similarly, a referendum overturned a county-wide sales tax implemented by the county commissioners last year. Guess what-they unanimously approved another one, at double the rate previously voted down.

    All they need to do is put up signs that say "Crime is only permitted between the hours of 8am - 4pm M-F".

    Sheriff: We can't protect you and we don't want you protecting yourselves. Move.

    I have two words for him and it ain't Merry Christmas.

    He says the county government seems to be pressuring the citizens to pass an additional tax hike they cannot afford.

    Uncle barry giveth and he taketh away... From rural populations of course.

    Hold out and when they quit, replace them with folks that are interested in their own community, not the citizens money. This is what happens when local governments suck at the federal teat for too long. The free money will eventually dry up and go where the votes are. The D's won't "feed" those that don't support them forever. They've learned who to butter to keep their power...

    What these lazy, jack booted, free loading, buzzards, could do is give up their "perks" of office, all of the assistants to the offices, and get off their lazy asses and do the job the taxpayers voted them to do.

    The politicians are the only real non critical part of any government the people could do without.

    Sheriffs are elected officials in Oregon. Remove the Sheriff first, then the County Commissioners.

    This is typical, when the chips are down there is no government the people can depend on.This kind of stuff has been allowed to go on for too long. In order to make any progress we must rid ourselves of the dimwitted people running things nation wide. The longer we wait the worse it will get.

    If they only have enough personnel to respond to "life-threatening" calls only, I would think they are probably spread out so thin that they wouldn't arrive in time to save the life being threatened.

    I guess I would like to see where the rest of money is being spent. Are all programs being cut or just the ones that have the most viability?

    I don't know but would be willing to bet if you put the county budget up to a popular vote that the residents would find other things to eliminate other than law enforcement. Might tick off the commissioners though.
