Letter: Public Safety Levy has support of the Bay Area Chamber – Coos Bay World

0 minutes, 33 seconds Read

As the Executive Director of the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce representing almost 500 businesses in Coos Bay, North Bend, and Charleston. We urge you to vote Yes on Ballot Measure 6-213 Public Safety Levy. It’s no secret that Coos County has a problem with crime, and our accountability system is seriously underfunded.

The Coos County Jail is only operating 1/3 of the jail beds available. Additionally, the DA’s Office is understaffed by two deputy district attorney positions leading to a backlog of over 1400 cases still awaiting trial. Nobody wants to pay more taxes, we get that, but we NEED the services our county provides, our PUBLIC SAFETY depends on it.
