.15% tax = $5.3M/yr
Predictions for 2020 vs. 2019:
$3.3M more in sales tax (+2.1%)
$4.1M more in property tax (15%)
Revenues were $152.6M, and a couple big-spend items: muni ($3.8M) Hogan Pancost ($700K) Alpine Balsam ($1.1M)
Brautigam will be making her recommendations Sept. 10
Not entirely sure that was the exact quote. I'll check the video and get it right for the story.
Brautigam: "The answer to that is unsatisfying."
Brautigam: We're working on that now. Would take $$ from facilities plan. We'd have to borrow $$. We have a non-tax source to pay it off.
Brautigam: No, it will be debt. But we have to ask voters still.
Would go with .10% to open space and .05% to the general fund.
Lots of the issues are bc of growth in the city "and it's going to get worse."
.15% sales tax extension, all for open space
.10% to open space, .05% to general fund
.10% to open space, .05% to transportation
Jones: "We'll let the lawyers figure out what they can tell us publicly."
