Purpose: "This measure would direct the City to continue to levy taxes to maintain the current level of street and neighborhood lighting. The tax rate would be $.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation and could not be changed without a vote of the people. The levy would expire in three years. It is estimated that this serial levy would raise $5,773,495 during the 1985-86 fiscal year, $5,946,850 during the 1986-87 fiscal year, and $6,125,210 during the 1987-88 fiscal year. This levy is outside the limitation provided by the Oregon State Constitution."
