BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett says he won't pursue complaints that Boulder County commissioners have been trying to intimidate voters to support a property tax-supported subdivision paving district.
Voters say the county sent letters and brochures to nearly 11,000 subdivision property owners about a proposed property tax that the county says would cover most of the costs of fixing deteriorating paved residential subdivision roads and would pay for keeping those roads in good shape.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, some voters said they were told if they didn't approve the proposed permanent subdivision paving public improvement district and a new property tax levy, the commissioners will go ahead and create a local improvement district.
