Municipalities Matter

Choices at the Local Level

Election BoothWhile the nation's voters continue to indicate their preferences in caucuses and primaries, voters in Colorado will be deciding the futures of their cities and towns next week. 

On April 5, citizens in 117 Colorado municipalities will be asked to vote for their municipal leaders, as well as determine the answers to a variety of questions about the future of their communities. 

Issues range from broadband access (in nine cities and towns) to sales tax increases or extensions in 13 municipalities (for projects as diverse as law enforcement in Berthoud to a municipal climate plan in Carbondale), from allowing the assumption of debt (for a downtown development authority) to allowing the retention of revenue. Marijuana is still an issue for municipalities, with nine cities and towns asking to approve taxes on its sale or production. 

How municipalities are governed is also a topic of discussion, with the adoption of a home rule ordinance taking place in Hudson.

Purely local issues take a look at bicycle (Ward) and off-highway vehicle (Creede) regulations. 

A number of long-tenured public servants will be leaving office, and many councilmembers, trustees, and mayors will be newly elected. CML thanks all municipal officials for their past and future service!

Other levels of government may talk a lot in order to get problems solved; at the municipal level we act to things done, in concert with our citizens. 

Let me know how you think your ballot measures will fare on April 5. I would love to hear from you.
