Oregon will have to collect revenue next year from a senior levy passed by voters last month to expand services at the James “Wes” Hancock senior center because the election results have been certified by the county.

“We have talked with the auditor’s office,” said Administrator Mike Beazley. “The city does not have a choice in choosing to collect that tax. The tax commission met for the county and certified it.”

He said city council could still decide to withhold the revenue from the 0.5-mill, five year levy in subsequent years.
