Jefferson County Ballot Question: 1A

Without creating any new tax or increasing the current authorized county mill levy without further voter approval, shall Jefferson County be permitted to retain and spend or reserve all revenues received during 2020 and expiring after 2026 (7 years), notwithstanding limitations on spending and revenue contained in the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights, Article X, Section 20 of the Colorado Constitution (TABOR) and applicable state statues, provided that, the maximum amount with the county may retain and spend or reserve above such limits in 2020 may not exceed $16.1 million (voters should be aware that due to existing spending and revenue limits in TABOR in 2019, a single-family home valued at $400,000 received a reduction in property taxes of approximately $9 a month/$105 year); and shall the county be permitted to retain and spend or reserve beginning in 2027 and thereafter an amount of county revenue that exceeds current spending and revenue limitations but is no greater than the excess local revenues cap, which continues to limit future growth as provided in resolution no. CC19-270, provided that any non-property tax revenue received in 2027 or thereafter may be retained and spent or reserved, notwithstanding limitations on spending and revenue contained in the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights and applicable state statues; and shall such revenue be used to fund the cost of county government for:
  • Providing for the safety of the public including maintaining adequate jail beds, staffing the District Attorney's Office, adequate patrol personnel, and wildfire mitigation;
  • Maintaining roads, bridges and other new transportation improvements;
  • Preserving public facilities and infrastructure including building security and maintenance; and
  • Providing services traditionally offered by Jefferson County and other Colorado county governments and statutorily required services,
With such spending to be reviewed and decided upon by the duly elected Board of County Commissioners as part of the annual budget process?
