What’s at Stake?
- $1.02 million in K-12 school funding for Tillamook County’s 3,301 students — about $438.28 per student.
- Tillamook Bay Community College: If the measures fail, TBCC could be forced to raise tuition 9%, cap enrollment, reduce days, and eliminate faculty positions as a result of a 5% reduction in Community College State Funding.
- Tillamook County Courts, which could close one day a week
- A tax break for 1,200 unemployed people, who will receive a tax refund on the first $2,400 they received in unemployment benefits
