Earlier this month, Curry County voters rejected a public safety levy for the seventh time. But the conversation following this vote is different because there’s a new option on the table. County commissioners could use a new state law to declare a public safety emergency and call in help from the governor’s office. Before going down that road, the commissioners could ask voters to pass a public safety measure in May 2014. So far, county leaders haven’t made a firm decision about what their next move should be.

Do you live in Curry County? How did you vote on the most recent public safety levy? How do you think the county should fund public safety services?
