by….don’t look now….
The elected Board of the Eagle River Fire Protection District (Jennifer Cartmell-Hays, John McCaulley, Darell Wegert, Clark Shivley, Clint Janssen) voted last Thursday (6DEC2012) to raise your Property Taxes.
On November 6th 2012 – 4,507 ERFPD voters said that was OK for that Board to raise your Property Taxes – 3,973 voters said it wasn’t. 53% vs. 47%
Last years 2012 ERFPD, Property Tax Mill Levy was 5.650 this years (2013) Property Tax Mill Levy has been raised (by a vote of the Fire District Board) by 1.903 Mills to a new total of 7.553 Mills that you will find printed on your 2013 Property Tax Bill – U.S. mailed to you by the Eagle County Treasurer (Karen Sheaffer) – this January 2013.
All Residential and Commercial Property in these areas of Eagle County (Camp Hale, Tennessee Pass, Redcliff, Minturn, Avon, Eagle-Vail, Mountain Star, Wildridge, Bachelor Gulch, Arrowhead, Homestead, Edwards, Lake Creek, Singletree, Pilgrim Downs, Cordillera, Bellyache Ridge, Red Sky Ranch and the portions of I-70, Hwy 6 & 24) communities…will be effected by this immediate 2013 Property Tax increase. The ECT folks would like to point out the fact that the folks who work at the Daily Fishwrap (who publically supported this property tax increase in print) don’t LIVE in (read: don’t own property in) the ERFPD. ECT asks folks paying for print advertising to the Fishwrap – to consider this fact when considering paying for your next print Ad…or hiring a ‘Santa’ this Christmas Season.
Thanks to you – it works for them. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your friends at the Eagle River Fire Protection District!
