Letter: ‘Measure 15-214 creates solid baseline funding’

April 15, 2023

Signs have been popping up around town, one for a yes vote on Measure 15-214 and one for a no vote.

A yes vote on the measure would dedicate 73% of Ashland’s food and beverage tax to the Ashland Parks and Recreation operating budget. The remaining portion of the operating budget would come from property taxes appropriated to parks by the City Council from the city’s general fund. This measure, if approved by voters, provides critically needed funding for parks operations and maintenance, thereby saving property tax dollars for other city services.

A no vote would ensure that funding for park operations and maintenance continued to be exclusively
funded by the city’s general fund.

Measure 15-214 creates solid baseline funding for our beautiful parks and enriches the livability of our
city. Please join me in voting YES on measure 15-214!
