Support for a bond measure to fund construction of a new police building for troutdale

Support for a Bond Measure to Fund Construction of a New Police Building for Troutdale

Question:As In an upcoming election, there may be a measure on the ballot which will ask voters to approve a 20-year bond measure to fund construction of a new police station for the Troutdale Police Department.

The measure would be in an amount not to exceed $5 million. If passed, this bond measure would add an estimated 28 cents per $1,000 of assessed value to the property tax rate. For example, a house valued at $200,000 would be assessed $56 per year in additional property tax.

If an election were held today, would you favor or oppose a bond measure to fund construction of a new police building for our community?

Evaluation of message effectiveness continued

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

The current building is over 50 years old, outdated and far too small to meet the current needs of police officers and operations.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued1

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

The city already owns the land on which the new police station would be built, which significantly reduces the cost to taxpayers and allows us to move forward rapidly to construction.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued2

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

Architects and engineers have indicated remodeling is not a cost effective option, as the existing police department has simply outgrown the current building.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued3

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

The new building would be built to meet the needs of the department for the next 50 years.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued4

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

The existing police station has structural, electrical, heating, ventilation, and air quality problems and does not accommodate people with disabilities.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued5

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

A new building would provide and allow for increased use of technology and would result in more efficiency and improved service.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued6

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

Approving this project now will give taxpayers more value for their money, as bond rates are at their lowest in decades and the construction industry is very competitive now.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued7

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

The police department must spend dollars every year for off-site storage due to lack of space at the existing facility.


Evaluation of message effectiveness continued8

Evaluation of Message Effectiveness(Continued)

The newfacility would include training and meeting space that could be used for public meetings.
