The District is aware of certain discussions in the community regarding the proposed questions authorizing monies to be allocated from the general fund for the purpose of constructing certain water and traffic safety improvements. Please note that to the extent these questions do not pass, there will not be any refund of the monies to the property owners and residents of the District. On November 3, 1998, the District’s voters approved an election question which authorizes the District to collect, spend and retain revenues from taxes and fees imposed by the District without any regard to limitations under Article X, Section 20 of the Colorado Constitution.
