Library District Taxes Clarified

By Mark Browning

Prior to the flood, the Library District Board of Trustees certified ballot language setting a maximum of 5.85 mills of taxing authority to fund the district.  That amount (which could not be changed after submission) was selected because it was slightly less than average for similar-sized Colorado library districts.  It was also projected to be enough to pay start-up costs (election costs, plus hiring accountants and attorneys), to fund interim library operations and to pay for initial phases of building a new library/resource center (final site review and acquisition, hire architects).
