Background Information

In March, Town staff presented Town Council an analysis of alternative revenue options. Also at that time, Council heard from the Fire and Police departments about their staffing and other needs over the next five years, given the Town’s expected growth. Details of those needs are in the infographic on this page.

Discussions continued, and the Town in June 2021 sought public feedback on some of the alternatives that were evaluated. A voter opinion poll explored the community’s thoughts about potential tax questions Town Council could place on the November 2021 ballot.

Council received and began discussions on the results of the poll during a June 15 study session. Council continued its discussion of this issue in July and on July 20 initially approved asking voters for permission to initiate new revenue streams and increase existing ones as part of this fall’s election.

The second page of the infographic explains the potential revenues being explored for open space, trails parks and recreation needs and a "TABOR time-out" that could help with funding the interchange and other needs.
