Voters reject county jail levy
September 16, 2014 08:18 pm

Ballot Measure 8-78 lost Tuesday night on two fronts: it didn’t get the minimum 50 percent turnout as required for a special election, nor did it get the majority of votes to win.

The measure lost 3,548 to 2,634, with 47.8 percent of eligible voters casting ballots.

The measure asked voters to approve a property tax hike of 68 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation to fund the jail — and only the jail.

Fires may impact regional travel

Fires in Southern Oregon and Northern California may impact travel in the region Tuesday.

Interstate 5 is closed this morning at Weed, Calif., where the Boles Fire forced the evacuation of several communities Monday.

"Be ready" evacuation warnings have been issued in areas east of Grant Pass near Highway 199 because of the Onion Mountain Fire. There are no current limits on traffic posted.
