Pro, con statements sought for ballots
EAGLE COUNTY — Eagle County will ask voters to consider a 0.3 percent sales tax to support affordable housing, as well as the expansion of the open space program to allow for trail construction and bonding authority to complete the Eagle Valley Trail.
County officials are now soliciting pro and con statements on the two ballot questions. Per Colorado state law, comments received will be summarized for inclusion in the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights ballot issue notice, which will be mailed to all registered voters by Oct. 7.
To be included in the summary, comments must address a specific ballot issue and include the submitter’s name, signature and the address where they are registered to vote. Only comments filed by persons eligible to vote on the issue are required to be summarized for the ballot issue notice.
Pro and con statements can be delivered by hand to the Eagle County Clerk & Recorder’s Office in Eagle at 500 Broadway, mailed to P.O. Box 537, Eagle, CO 81631 or scanned and emailed to email@example.com. Statements must be received no later than Sept. 23.
