Dear Friends and Neighbors

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!

Sincerely,          Lyn Brock           545-1205


Enterprise Zone 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
Monday, August 16, 7:00 PM in the City Council Chambers, 500 Klamath Avenue.
