Wiley Residents to Decide Mill Increase


Wiley voters will decide on a mill levy increase rate during their April 3rd municipal election and the vote will also determine the length of term for the four trustees on the ballot.  They are: Dale Stewart, Tom Proctor, Julie Esgar and Sandy Coen.  Because there are as many candidates as there are openings, the voting will determine which of the three will serve four year terms and which one, who receives the least number of ballots, will serve a two year term.

The ballot will also contain Referred Measure 1A: Increase taxes in the Town of Wiley.  Voters are being asked to approve or reject the measure to increase the mill levy 19 additional mills, not to exceed 45.5 mills.  The increase will serve to balance the general operating and capital expense to the town including street maintenance and repairs, personnel costs and other items necessary to continue the current level of service and improvements.  The measure will fall under the TABOR law and if approved, will generate an additional $22,536.24 a year to cover the costs of upkeep.
