Our Klamath Basin
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Dear Friends and
August 12, 2004
Do you really want a huge
corporation from Chicago to come into Klamath County
and receive a $71,000,000.00 (seventy one million
dollar) tax break?
Whether you are for or against the COB Energy
Facility being sited in Langell Valley, you might
have a strong opinion about our county commissioners
granting this for-profit company from Chicago a huge
tax break ... especially since it means that you
might have to pay higher taxes to support the
increased cost of infrastructure.
We need to have a big turnout at the City
Council meeting next Monday to voice our concerns.
I would like to encourage all of you to call or
e-mail your friends and family who live in Klamath
Falls or own a business in Klamath Falls and
encourage them to attend this meeting also. If the
City Council does not approve expansion of the
enterprise zone, then the COB will have to pay
their fair share of taxes. Please
see information about the enterprise zone and the
City Council meeting below. I hope to see all of
you at this meeting!
Hearing: It takes a double majority to
expand the Enterprise Zone to the COB. That is,
both the City of Klamath Falls and Klamath County
have to approve the expansion. The Enterprise Zone
CAN NOT be extended without both the Klamath
Falls City Council AND the Klamath County
Board of Commissioners approving.
The City of Klamath Falls
City Council will hold their public hearing
on Monday, August 16, 7:00 PM in the
City Council Chambers, 500 Klamath Avenue.
