Lafayette, CO

Type: Property Tax

Outcome: Loss

Results: Fail, 54.5% - 45.5%

Polling in Boulder County, CO indicated that a county-wide ballot initiative in 2016 would not be successful, but the Lafayette City Council thinks the polling suggests the city could pass its own initiative.  The city is now considering either a 1.25- or a 1.77-mill property tax to provide free EcoPasses to all Lafayette residents who request them.  EcoPasses provide unlimited rides on RTD buses and trains in the Denver metro area, including Boulder County.  The proposal is under consideration for the November ballot.
