BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
Provided for your consideration is a Resolution setting forth the necessary ballot language required for a taxing increase request to go before the electorate of Archuleta County. State Statute requires that all ballot language be delivered to the County Clerk by a date certain in order for a ballot to be certified. For the calendar year 2018, that date is September 5th. This proposed action by the Board of County Commissioners satisfies that requirement. The ballot question provided herein shall be the ballot question submitted to the voters for their consideration at the November 6th Coordinated Election.
Two ballot questions are provided for the Commissioners' review and approval, one marked LONG and the other marked SHORT.
The intent of the request is to seek voter authorization to raise taxes for Justice System capital improvements.
A Reimbursement Resolution is one of the first steps that the County will take regarding an anticipated ballot question as it relates to bond issuance for new criminal justice facilities. The intent of this Resolution is to establish parameters by which the County can be reimbursed for all or a portion of capital expenditures incurred or to incurred on the County’s behalf. One of the statutory requirements of the Resolution is the inclusion of a "not to exceed" reimbursement amount. The amount shown in the proposed Resolution is a not to exceed amount, and is there for no other purpose but to meet that requirement. Definitive amounts will be in the actual ballot question.
