Thanks for voting in Pitkin tax increase

Pitkin County Board of County Commissioners
Patti Clapper, Dorothea Farris, Jack Hatfield, Mick Ireland, Shellie Roy

Dear Editor,

Our communities are special because the people of the Roaring Fork Valley care about each other. That sense of caring was made clear in the election on Nov. 5 when so many voted to support a tax increase for Pitkin County residents that makes major differences in the lives of those who live here and those who provide the necessary, the essential, and the valued services in our communities.

The members of the Board of County Commissioners want to thank all who worked so diligently and tirelessly to inform the voters about the need for the election and about the details of the economic conditions in Pitkin County that exist because of our low property tax and our dependence on sales tax. Especially, we wish to thank all those who thoughtfully considered the value of the services to the community that will be provided because of the support for the additional tax and who honored the County with its trust through such a positive vote.



Thank you.

Pitkin County Board of County Commissioners



Patti Clapper, Dorothea Farris, Jack Hatfield, Mick Ireland, Shellie Roy
