NOTICE OF RECEIPT BALLOT TITLE City of Johnson City Notice is hereby given on November 8, 2022, an initiative election will be conducted by mail in the City of Johnson City, Clackamas County, Oregon, at which there will be submitted to qualified voters of the City of Johnson City the following question: CAPTION: SHALL JOHNSON CITY ANNEX INTO THE LIBRARY DISTRICT OF CLACKAMAS COUNTY? QUESTION: Shall Johnson City annex into the Library District of Clackamas County to restore full library services to Johnson City residents? SUMMARY: In July 2009, Clackamas County formed a Library Services District that includes the entire county except for the cities of Damascus, Johnson City, and the Clackamas County portion of Tualatin. Because Johnson City residents do not pay into the new District, Johnson City residents lost access to Clackamas and other counties’ libraries. If approved, Johnson City would be annexed to the Library District of Clackamas County. The levy would be $0.3974 per thousand. An average Johnson City household ($57,300 assessed valuation) would pay approximately $22.77 per year. Annexation to the Library District would: – Provide dedicated funding to the Library District of Clackamas County. – Restore full library privileges to Johnson City residents. – Allow residents to access libraries in Hood River, Multnomah, Washington, Clark, Klickitat, and Skamania counties. If the measure fails, residents could use the Johnson City Library materials but would have to pay fees to each county to use a particular county’s libraries. This ballot title was filed with the City Recorder of the City of Johnson City on Tuesday, July 12, 2022.Voters have until 5:00 p.m. on August 4, 2022, to file a petition for review of the ballot title in Clackamas County Circuit Court. Any voter filing a petition for review must also file a copy of the petition with Clackamas County Elections Division, 1710 Red Soils Ct., Ste 100, Oregon City, not later than 5 pm on the next business day after petition is filed with the Circuit Court.
