ELID may have been stopped, but…

The documentation on this site, related to the proposed ELID is important, even though supposedly the proposed ELID is not moving forward.  These blogs will give you a heads-up, so you can see the original direction of this ELID  (Evergreen Local Improvement District), and work to head off whatever it morphs into.

Listed are previous blog posts on this site so far about the ELID issue – including a YouTube of Dean Dalvit presenting his proposal at the Evergreen Lake House.  The blogs on this subject so far:  0234, 0236, 0238, and 0239 (this blog piece).  Titles and links to these blog pieces are at the end of this blog.

Beginning of report on August 1, 2017 Jeffco County Commissioner’s
Staff Briefings

After the conclusion of the 8:00 public testimony on the first floor of the Jefferson County County Building, people moved to the 5th floor conference room for staff briefings for the County Commissioners.

2017-07-28_County Commissioner’s meeting on ELID_Aug 1 – BCC briefed on ELID_schedule

This morning our county commissioners in Jefferson County Colorado will be briefed by those supporting making Evergreen a Local Improvement District (LID).  We need a briefing from those not supporting the LID.

Here is the body of an email from Art Onweller, July 28, 2017 – subject: County Commissioners’ meeting on ELID:

Progress is slowly proceeding to present the plan for establishing an Evergreen Local Improvement District (ELID) and present it to the County Commissioners. It takes two Commissioners to approve the plan without anyone of us voting on it. Once approved, the next step is to place a 1% sales tax on the November ballot for approval. This tax will be used to fund the ELID. Continue reading
