2021 Ballot Measures

Greeley Sales Tax

Ballot Issue 2F

The Greeley area has been one of the fastest-growing communities in the country.

This year, voters will be asked to consider renewing the Keep Greeley Moving infrastructure tax, which provides funding for transportation-related repairs, improvements, and construction. 

Renewing the Keep Greeley Moving tax will allow the city to improve the quality of Greeley’s worst streets, add capacity to its busiest roads and intersections, and repair sidewalks in neighborhoods across the city.

The KGM infrastructure tax, as part of the city’s budget, will continue to be independently audited and overseen by the citizens’ budget advisory committee and published on the city’s website for all taxpayers to review.

Water Ballot Measures

This November, voters will be asked to consider two changes to the city’s Home Rule Charter, which has successfully guided how the city manages the community’s water resources since 1958. The changes would make Greeley the only city in Colorado to require a special election to approve water management decisions the city considers to be routine.

The changes would require the city to hold elections on water-related matters, putting operational questions on the ballot that must pass by a majority of all registered voters, regardless of voter turnout to the elections. The changes could delay or suspend long-term water leases, limit the use of leases with farmers interested in selling their water now but not yet done farming, and limit Greeley’s position in the water purchasing market. The changes duplicate the state law that already requires a vote for any sale or trade of a waterworks or utility asset.  The changes also would require an election prior to using groundwater or recycled wastewater for drinking or irrigation (non-potable) use. The proposed changes would also require that an engineering study of the lease, sale or trade be performed and published at least sixty (60) days before the election.

Changes to Charter, 17-9

Ballot issue 2G

The addition of a new section 17.9 to the Charter would require the city to hold elections on water-related matters, putting operational questions on the ballot that must pass by a majority of all registered voters, regardless of voter turnout to the election. The changes could delay or suspend long-term water leases, limit the use of leases with farmers interested in selling their water now but not yet done farming, and limit Greeley’s position in the water purchasing market. The changes duplicate the state law that already requires a vote for any sale or trade of a waterworks or utility asset.  The proposed changes would also require that an engineering study of the lease, sale or trade be performed and published at least sixty (60) days before the election

Changes to Charter, 17-10

Ballot measure 2H

The addition of a new section 17-10 to the Charter would require a majority of all registered voters, regardless of voter turnout to the election, before the city could use, purchase, lease, or provide groundwater or recycled wastewater for drinking water or irrigation (non-potable) use.  Greeley currently uses groundwater and indirectly recycles wastewater to serve non-potable water throughout the city. This change would require that an engineering study be performed and published at least sixty (60) days prior to the election.
