Today’s Guest Speaker - Joye McHenry with the Cortez Rec Center
April 3rd - city of Cortez vote to extend and lower sales tax
Bond originally passed in 2001, set to expire in 2021
Decided to bring to voters to continue to subside rec center
What it will take to subsidize at current rate? .055% currently, based on projection decided they needed .035% sales tax
This will be a tax in perpetuity, meaning it will not expire or change until another amendment is passed
Rec Center entry fees will remain the same, but now they include exercise classes in annual pass
Meeting adjourned at 7:30am
