A sales tax instead

We are being told we need around $800 million to meet our stormwater infrastructure requirements. The Pikes Peak Stormwater Task Force, a group of like-minded citizens and consultants, has created a proposal to fund and manage this work. City councilors and county commissioners support their proposal, and the ballot question will go before voters in November.

Will the voters approve it? I seriously doubt it.

The Task Force has proposed that funding come from a complex methodology focusing on "impervious surface" amounts. It is unknown why road users are exempt; why we'll collect fees from local governments, which will get 100 percent of their payments returned to them; and why schools and nonprofits — underfunded and vital to our community — are subject to this fee.
