With decreased revenues expected for 2020 and beyond, Clear Creek County staff and elected officials are hopeful they can maintain services and programs.
One suggestion during the 2020 budget discussion at the Oct. 1 county commissioners meeting to accomplish such a feat was to work on consolidating services, programs and resources with other local entities. Another was a possible bond issue on the 2020 ballot.
“I think we’re going to start hitting the point of diminishing returns if we haven’t already,” Commissioner Sean Wood said. “We have a staggering amount of deferred maintenance projects. One option is a bond issue if it’s supported by the community. … We should look into it.”
Commissioner Randy Wheelock said that a bond and/or mill levy increase is certainly an option.
