Glenwood’s Rippy appointed to state Internet authority
Gregg Rippy, a former state lawmaker from Glenwood Springs, has been appointed by Gov. John Hickenlooper to the Statewide Internet Portal Authority.
He will serve as a representative of the private sector on the authority, which, according to its website, https://www.colorado.gov/sipa, “accelerates the adoption of electronic government services by helping local and state governments place more services, products and information online.” In 2013, the website says, Colorado governments saved $6 million annually by using services provided by the authority.

Current Basalt officials say the town government has violated the Colorado Taxpayers’ Bill of Right by increasing the property tax mill levy over the prior years 10 times since the mid-2000s. Two former mayors contend the mill levy could be adjusted in any given year as long as it didn’t exceed the mill levy in 1994. It’s a $2 million question.
