The Paint Brush Hills Metropolitan District (the “District”) placed Measure 5B (the “Measure”) on the November 8, 2016 El Paso County General Election ballot to utilize the revenue, if retained by the District, to provide essential District services to its residents and property owners (sometimes referred to as de-TABORing or de-Brucing). Colorado law, specifically TABOR and the statutory 5.5% limitation, place strict revenue constraints on the District. In light of the current fiscal constraints of the District, voters are being asked to consider whether the amount over the revenue limits should be retained to continue essential District services.
The District is not asking to increase the District mill levy.
