Ballots are in the mail and refund checks for over collected taxes have arrived. I appreciate the Town of Basalt’s transparency in getting to the bottom of the TABOR issue and making the decision to offer the refunds. And now it is time to thank them and move forward by voting Yes on 3A.
Ballot question 3A will set the mill levy at the current rate on 5.957, give the town the ability to raise and lower the rate without exceeding 5.957 and reaffirm the 1994 vote supporting debrucing as it relates to property tax specifically. Please cast your Yes vote on Question 3A and have your ballots in by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 5th.
