Message from Chief Mills

The following is an excerpt from the chief's message, found on page 3 of the annual report:

 Our mission statement is “Dedicated to our community through quality services, compassion, and excellence.”  As we and all other rural Colorado Special Districts move into the future however, there are legislative roadblocks that may result in significant financial hindrances which will cause difficulties in fully executing our missions.  Specifically, these “legislative roadblocks” are the Gallagher Amendment in conjunction with restrictions imposed by the TABOR Amendment.  Since it is not the intent of this report to describe the in-depth intricacies of the negatively synergistic issues created by these two amendments, I request that you review the following links at your leisure for a more comprehensive understanding of the problem.
