Elk Creek tax increase is debated at two events

The Elk Creek Fire District’s proposed tax increase continues to be a hot topic for Conifer area residents.
“I think the most important thing is getting information out so people can make an educated decision,” said Jennifer Eleniewski, chair of the Friends of Elk Creek.
Discussions occurred at two events last week: The Conifer Area Council’s public affairs committee hosted a forum Sept. 17 at which Fire Chief Bill McLaughlin and former board member Mike Bartlett
spoke. McLaughlin also appeared at a town hall meeting the following night.
This November, the fire department is asking for a 2.5-mill increase in the property-tax levy that would sunset after 10 years.
Next up, the Friends of Elk Creek are hosting an informative meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 2 at Conifer High School.
