Welcome to City Focus - the Podcast from the League of Oregon Cities

Nov 1, 2018

On this episode, LOC lobbyist Wendy Johnson discusses part one of the League’s second legislative priority, Revenue Reform and Cost Containment.  For cities, revenue reform is focused on property tax reform. Property taxes are the largest source of revenue for cities, with $1.39 billion collected in FY 2017-18. The League’s ultimate goal is a constitutional referral to voters and a companion bill that makes statutory changes to reform the property tax system.
