Mayor's Corner

Message from the Mayor
November, 2014
Your ballots are due on Nov. 4. Please vote! You will be electing two City Council candidates and multiple state and federal officials, plus voting on state ballot measures and a county vehicle registration fee.

This fee would be $30 per vehicle and $17 per motorcycle each year. The cities of Washington County would split 40 percent of the total collected, which is estimated to be around $800,000 per year for Tigard. The county portion is required to be used for street maintenance only. The cities’ portion is required to be used for transportation infrastructure.

The city council would then decide on how to use this money with examples being: additional sidewalks, new roadways or intersection improvements, or reducing our current street maintenance fee. Whether you feel voting is a right or a responsibility, the democratic process works best when we have the majority of the electorate involved.

I am honored to have been elected to serve on the Oregon Mayors Association Board of Directors for the years 2015 and 2016.

My next “Fireside Chat with the Mayor” is on Thursday, Nov. 6, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Symposium Coffee, 12345 SW Main St.

My November quote of the month is by Charles Simmons, “Never go backward. Attempt, and do it with all your might. Determination is power.

Mayor's Signature
John L. Cook, Mayor
