Douglas County Commissioners advance two issues to the November ballot

Posted on August 23, 2022 2022Breaking NewsEconomic FoundationsElectionsHistoric and Natural Resources


Douglas County will ask voters about two topics on the November ballot – broadband and open space sales tax.

During a Regular Business Meeting Tuesday, Aug. 23, the Board adopted a resolution asking voters whether to allow the County to enter into public-private partnerships to improve telecommunications services, such as high-speed internet. Currently, state law prohibits local government involvement in telecommunication services.

During a Special Business Meeting Tuesday, Aug. 23, the Board adopted a resolution asking voters whether to extend the Open Space Sales and Use Tax for 15 years – to Jan. 1, 2039. If voters do not approve the extension, the sales tax will expire on Dec. 31, 2023.

Read the full ballot language in each resolution linked above.
