LIVE TODAY @ 4:00 pm Pacific, It's the Boze Noze Show! New taxes for Lane County will be on the ballot in November. No, not to hire more deputy DA's so we prosecute all felonies. This tax will go to repair and upgrade parks. Once again I was the lone vote against this as I feel we are letting our State legislators and Congress critters off the hook for their lack of support and asking locals to make up the difference for a non-critical function. If I am going to ask senior citizens to increase their property taxes then it is going to be to support a critical function that is a life safety issue like keeping criminals off the street. We also heard one of the best reports on our homeless efforts since I have been a Commissioner. A very clear road map of the current system and how we are working to improve it as well as a report on the outcomes from existing programs. It was interesting that a program that included navigation (case management) had a 69% success rate in clients exiting to permanent housing where a "safe sleeps" program only had a 7% exit to housing rate. Now we need to under the cost of these programs per client served to determine where we should be investing. Even if the first program mentioned is three times more expensive per client we would move 3 times more people into permanent housing for the same amount of your tax dollars. Oh, and COVID is still around at high transmission rates. We can also talk about anything else on your mind, just give us a call!
