BoCC to consider ballot measure for ed center mill levy

The November ballot will be a topic of conversation at the June 1 meeting of the Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners.

The draft agenda discussed at the May 24 BoCC agenda review session for the June 1 meeting includes two matters that will be of interest to voters in November’s general election — a possible appearance on the ballot by the Archuleta County Education Center and a BoCC stance on three proposed amendments.

Concerning the Ed Center, the commissioners will consider a motion that would, in short, demonstrate BoCC intent to place a proposed levy of 1.5 mills for the Ed Center on the November ballot.

Regardless of a commissioner decision Tuesday, a formal resolution would have to be passed by the BoCC in August to approve the ballot language and place the proposal on the ballot.

The commissioners will also consider approving a resolution making a statement against three November ballot issues:

• Proposition 101, which, if passed, would reduce vehicle and income tax and telecommunications revenues over four years;

• Amendment 60, which, if passed, would limit property taxes; and

• Amendment 61, which, if passed, would limit government borrowing and require voter approval of future borrowing.

The items will be heard at the June 1 meeting, which will be held at 1:30 p.m. in the Archuleta County Courthouse, in the commissioners’ meeting room.
