To be clear, Mayor Bach has specifically said he does not support a tax increase to fund City for Champions. He also has said the Springs Capital Improvement Program bonds are to be paid off in a few years. These are being paid off without a tax increase, and new bonds could be issued and repaid from general fund revenues that already exist without a tax increase. Just FYI.
The link provided by OldCrank is a comparison of county spending, not city. The Springs Fire Department doesn't rely on El Paso County tax money for its support.
Thanks, Andy. One of the council staff said she thought it was 2013 budget, plus 10 percent, although my recollection was minus 10 percent as you state.

Big Red, I doubt that the Regional Tourism Act played a role in the Pueblo river walk. The RTA was only adopted a couple years ago and had its first allocation to projects in 2011 or 2012. This is the second year of a three-year program. However, Pueblo did get funded in the first go-round to build a bull-riders school. But the river walk itself was not an RTA project.
Gurudori, It was the Naval Academy that said no, not the Air Force Academy.
Siggie, The Colorado Open Meetings Law has no provision for private businesses to make determinations about who is or is not admitted to public meetings.
