Beav’ Metro District opposes ballot questions
Vail, CO Colorado
AVON, Colorado – The board of directors of the Beaver Creek Metropolitan District adopted a resolution July 28 stating its opposition to Amendment 60, Amendment 61 and Proposition 101, which are slated to appear on the November statewide ballot. These three initiatives are expected to affect the finances of local governments, hindering the services and operations in Beaver Creek, as well as throughout Eagle County and the State of Colorado, metro district officials said.
The Beaver Creek Metropolitan District is a quasi-governmental agency responsible for the roads, transportation and infrastructure located within the Beaver Creek Resort. The board believes that Amendment 60, Amendment 61 and Proposition 101 will significantly reduce the district’s ability to keep the roads and infrastructure in serviceable condition.
Amendment 60, Amendment 61 and Proposition 101 are associated with property tax limitations, financing term length, and other tax- and fee-based revenues. The district’s revenues would be reduced significantly, resulting in cutbacks to its services, including transportation, public safety, fire protection and road maintenance, officials say.
