How much is too much?

An effort to slow down the number of vacation rentals in the unincorporated areas of Lincoln County, the state Land Use Board Appeals (LUBA) reacted by pulling the rug out from under those permanent residents who have been trying to slow down the emergence of vacation rentals outside city limits. State LUBA stepped in and invalidated the measure saying it’s is in violation of state law that governs counties. The group, 15 Neighborhoods, is trying to slow down things down. 15 Neighborhood’s Monica Kirk and Michelle Riley have 21 days to appeal LUBA’s ruling.

Sheriff's Office Cut Backs Lead To Community Concerns

Lincoln County Sheriff's Office Patrol VehicleLCSO. Effective July 31, 2022, Lincoln County Sheriff Curtis Landers announced the Sheriff's Office will be reducing patrol deputy response to non-criminal calls for service and certain lower-level criminal complaints. The reduction in service is due to an extraordinarily low number of certified/sworn deputies available to handle emergency calls. Deputies will be focusing primarily on responding to emergency and in-progress calls for service. “We have been evaluating this situation for over a year and it doesn’t seem to be improving” stated Sheriff Curtis Landers. “We have multiple contracts and a taxing district for law enforcement services that we need to uphold.”
