Town of Avon Seeking Pro and Con Statements
for Two Ballot Questions

Comments addressing specific ballot issues must be provided by Friday


The Town of Avon is soliciting pro and con statements on two ballot questions, Ballot Issue 2E and 2F, which will appear on the Town of Avon ballot for the November 3, 2020 election.

Per Colorado state law, comments received will be summarized for inclusion in the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) ballot issue notice, which will be mailed to all registered voters. To be included in the summary, comments must address the specific ballot issue and include the submitter’s name, signature and the address where they are registered to vote. Only comments filed by persons eligible to vote on the issue are required to be summarized for the ballot issue notice.

The first question, Ballot Issue 2E, is a de-Gallagher ballot question asking voters to authorize, but not require, the Avon Town Council to adjust the Town’s mill levy rate for the sole purpose of sustaining existing levels of revenue from future state-imposed reductions in residential assessed valuation rates.

The second question, Ballot Issue 2F, is an amendment to the Avon Home Rule charter that would allow individual council members to decrease or decline compensation during their term in office.

Statements must be received no later than noon on Friday, September 18, 2020.

The language is as follows:

BALLOT ISSUE 2E - SUSTAINING EXISTING LEVELS OF COUNTY REVENUE FROM FUTURE STATE IMPOSED REDUCTIONS IN RESIDENTIAL ASSESSED VALUATION RATES DUE TO ARTICLE X, SECTION 3 OF THE COLORADO CONSTITUTION (GALLAGHER AMENDMENT) OR SIMILAR STATE ACTION

WITHOUT RAISING THE MILL LEVY FOR THE 2021 TAX COLLECTION YEAR, SHALL THE AVON TOWN COUNCIL HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO ADJUST THE TOWN OF AVON’S MILL LEVY RATE THEREAFTER AS NEEDED FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF MAINTAINING REVENUES THAT MAY OTHERWISE BE LOST AS A RESULT OF STATE IMPOSED REDUCTIONS IN THE RATIO OF ASSESSED PROPERTY TAX VALUATIONS SO THAT THE ACTUAL TAX REVENUES GENERATED BY THE TOWN’S MILL LEVIES ARE THE SAME AS THE REVENUES THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GENERATED HAD THE STATE NOT IMPOSED SUCH REDUCTIONS, IN ORDER TO ALLOW THE TOWN TO SUSTAIN SERVICES TO THE AVON COMMUNITY?

BALLOT ISSUE 2F – AVON HOME RULE CHARTER AMENDMENT REGARDING COUNCIL COMPENSATION

Shall the Home Rule Charter of the Town of Avon be amended by amending and readopting Section 4.8 - Compensation, as follows:

Section 4.8 - Compensation. The members of the Council shall receive such compensation, and the Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem, such additional compensation, as the Council shall prescribe by ordinance; provided, however, that the compensation of any member during his or her term of office shall not be increased or decreased. The compensation of any Council member may not be increased or decreased by Council during such Council member’s term in office. A Council member may individually and unilaterally choose in writing to decrease or decline that Council member’s compensation temporarily or for the remainder of that Council member’s term. The Mayor and members of the Council may, upon order of the Council, be paid their actual and necessary expenses incurred in the performance of their duties of office.

Pro and con statements can be delivered by hand to the Avon Town Clerk at Avon Town Hall, 100 Mikaela Way, Avon, Colorado 81620; or emailed to btorres@avon.org.
