ELECTION 2014: Voters approve new hospital, reject public safety tax

The Curry Coastal Pilot

The polls in Curry County closed at 8 p.m. tonight and initial results show a majority of voters were willing to raise their taxes to help build a new hospital in Gold Beach, but not to support a countywide public safety measure.

More than 65 percent of voters in the Curry Health District, which stretches from Port Orford to Pistol River, approved a $10 million obligation bond to replace the Curry General Hospital in Gold Beach.

At the same time, 58 percent of all Curry County voters rejected a county public safety tax measure that would have raised taxes by $1.34 per $1,000 of accessed property value.

In Port Orford about 57 percent of the voters approved a local option tax levy for funding the police department.

In Gold Beach, 53 percent of voters said no to a seven-year tax levy to purchase a new fire truck.
