Saguache County Board of Commissioners Vote to Oppose Prop HH
October 23, 2023
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAGUACHE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS Vote to Oppose Prop HH
Saguache County Board of Commissioners have voted to oppose proposition HH, a measure on the upcoming November ballot.
If approved by voters, this measure would greatly impact the next 10 years of budgets for county governments as they rely largely and sometimes solely on property taxes as their revenue source.
Our Saguache County constituents request improvements to transportation, housing, public safety, and other services, and we, the Saguache County Commissioners are concerned that Prop HH could reduce our local governments’ ability to respond to these public expectations, unfunded mandates, and additional regulatory requirements.
If Proposition HH were to pass it would mandate reductions in local property taxes for at least 10 years, resulting in billions of dollars of lost revenue for county governments without any reduction in service obligations.
Saguache County Commissioners said, "Prop HH will have a long-term negative effect on TABOR with a minimal short-term benefit."
Property taxes are crucial for county governments to provide services, facilities and infrastructure needed and desired by their communities for public health, welfare, and safety.
