In 2016, the economy improved and as a result sales tax and other revenue increased, ultimately growing faster than allowed by TABOR. Mayor Suthers is recommending that City Council place a question on the April ballot asking voters to allow the City to retain $6 million in excess revenue in 2016, and up to the same amount in 2017, to be used for designated stormwater projects.
Mayor Suthers sits down with Richard Randall on KVOR to talk about issues facing the City and take calls and questions from residents.
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department worked with the Trust for Public Land and community philanthropist Lyda Hill to produce an economic benefits analysis for our parks system.
In the community-created master plan in 2014, it was evident that our parks system plays a significant role in contributing to a high quality of life, but these factors were previously considered intangible and difficult to quantify.
