City Council will be holding a meeting to make a statement and receive questions and comments from the public regarding ballot questions 2A, 2B, and 2C.
On Wednesday, March 27th, at 6:00 p.m., the Grand Junction City Council will be hosting a community meeting to discuss the recent concerns about the ballot questions being considered by voters in the upcoming municipal election. The concerns are centered around the portion of the ballot language that attempted to illustrate how each of the tax increases would impact a purchase. Members of City Council, as well as staff, look forward to the opportunity to clarify ballot language and answer questions from community members. The meeting will be held in the auditorium at City Hall, located at 250 N. 5th Street.
As a reminder, this year voters are asked to consider the following questions on the ballot, due on April 2nd:
* Three Council seats up for election: District B, District C, and an At-large seat;
* Three sales tax questions: an increase in sales tax for first responders, transportation, and a community center;
* One question regarding the sale of Burkey Park; and
* Two questions concerning amendments to the City’s Charter (regarding franchises and lease terms).
