BoCC to hold ballot measure work session

Next Monday, public comment will be taken on possible ballot measures being considered for the November ballot by the Archuleta County Board of County Commissioners.

The meeting has been noticed as a BoCC work session, meaning no decisions on the items can legally be made at the meeting.

The work session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the courthouse.

County Administrator Greg Schulte and Commissioner Clifford Lucero indicated that possible ballot measures to be discussed at the meeting are:

• A roads-specific mill levy;

• A reduction of sales tax on the purchases of automobiles, recreational vehicles and boats; and

• A use tax on building materials.

Lucero said the BoCC would not take comment on the Archuleta County School District 50 Jt. potential bond issue for a consolidated campus at the meeting.

The BoCC has until July 22 to notify Archuleta County Clerk June Madrid in writing if they intend to include a measure or measures on the November coordinated mail ballot.

The BoCC would then have until Aug. 16 (the last meeting prior to the Sept. 2 deadline unless a special meeting is called), to approve a resolution for each intended ballot measure.

The resolution(s) certifying the ballot questions are due to the clerk by Sept. 2.

Following the certified ballot questions, pros and cons would be sought for each measure between Sept. 8 and Sept. 20.
