Sales Tax Work Session

Director Shafer distributed an updated Sales Tax Planning worksheet to the meeting participants reviewing each item on the worksheet.  After discussion, the Board decided on a sales tax rate of 5.5% that would generate an estimated revenue of $359,000.  The Board than reviewed the sample ballot language included in the packet and decided to use language similar to that used by Red Sky Ranch Metropolitan District.  The Board directed Ms. Johnston to update the ballot language and send to Counsel for review. 

The Board then discussed possible opportunities and materials to educate Arrowhead owners and residents on the benefits and necessity for an Arrowhead sales tax.  The Board is planning to request presenting a brief seminar at the July and September AVA Town Hall meetings as well as prepare some educational information that can be distributed to residents and owners. 

The Board reviewed the timeline of the election and implementation and collection of the sales tax, if it passes.  Mr. Marchetti reviewed election specifics such as the appointment and duties of the Designated Election Official, the election resolution, and TABOR statements and notices.  The Board then reviewed estimated costs associated with the election.
