Medical marijuana grows exceed legal limit
August 22, 2014 09:40 pm

A sheriff’s deputy secures marijuana plants confiscated during a bust on South Bank Chetco River Road.

Curry County Sheriff’s deputies had their first two busts related to medical marijuana grow operations this month, Lt. John Ward said Thursday.

The investigations resulted in two people being cited for manufacturing marijuana.

The Sheriff’s office received two complaints from citizens in the past two weeks regarding suspicious activities, and discovered marijuana growing operations that were not operating within the law. 

Four-cent gas tax for road repairs
August 22, 2014 09:39 pm

The Brookings City Council will discuss a resolution to place a 4-cent-per-gallon fuel tax on the May 19, 2015 ballot during its regular 7 p.m. meeting on Monday.

The proposal was crafted to generate funds for road repair and improvements throughout town as the current method — a Street System Replacement Fee (SRF) that shows up on water and sewer bills — isn’t generating enough money to keep up with the city’s needs.

Under the terms of the resolution, any tax approved by voters would be adjusted, to a maximum of 4 cents per gallon, to garner up to $300,000. The first year of the tax, too, will provide city officials with much-needed information regarding fuel consumption in the city.
