4 The Brief Story of Lane County Funding After nearly 100 years of federal timber revenue subsidy, Lane County is once again approaching a critical crossroads

5 Timber Subsidy Ending? Federal contract to share timber revenue since 1916 O&C History O&C History Last 18 years very volatile with budget cuts in 13 of those years chart chart Current timber renewal for 4-Years. We are now in Year 2. If not renewed, go back to old 50/50 formula based upon actual timber cut

6 Tax Base Changes/Restrictions Federal timber subsidy influenced prior attempts to change property tax base In the meantime, voters imposed two major property tax restrictions (M5 & 50) resulting in permanent tax rate 1.28/1000 Our tax rate, even when adjusted by rate timber $$, lowest of 36 Oregon counties rate

7 Unrestricted Dollars Shrinking Unrestricted dollars (no strings) now only 14.5% of total budget chart chart Have Structural Deficit (exp. outpacing rev.) into foreseeable future jaws jaws Critical core services like public health & safety starving for funding

8 Contributing Factors State mandates/restrictions further diminish unrestricted funding or dictate service level funding (A&T, Pub. Hlth) Surviving on grants/outside funding but “many strings” attached Prior record with ballot measures dismal

9 Major Crossroad Ahead? If the timber subsidy disappears entirely, County will once again be at a major crossroads After the last 13 years of cuts, which of the remaining critical services should be cut next or eliminated entirely?
