CONO Economic Forums

Dave Munger discussed the status of the economic forums and asked for comments from the membership.  One member stated he had a concern about the disenfranchising of citizens by threatening their Transit services.  Another cited that the City has missed sales tax because big box stores/sales tax revenue centers are now being built outside city limits.  The difficulty caused by the City’s large geographic “dispersement” makes public transit difficult. Transit goes from a $9 million budget to a $3 million budget.

Second forum, Dr. Crowley discussed that TABOR is incorrect.  Changes are added rather than multiples population/inflation; artificially/incorrectly reduces revenue to government.  The Gallagher Amendment was discussed.  Economic rebound will not occur quickly.  Other cities are growing faster even though COS has many desirable attributes
