Mosquito Measure Close To November Ballot
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- After receiving numerous requests from residents living outside the district, the Grand River Mosquito District is trying to get a mosquito measure placed on the November ballot that would expand its service area.
The current district encompasses the Colorado River south to Highway 340. The western boundaries include 15 Road east to 20 Road and north to M Road. The eastern boundary includes Palisade west to 30 Road in Clifton.
If the measure passes, their service would be extended north to the Governmental Highline Canal, including almost all of the Eastern Grand Valley.
The measure would include a $1.513 million mill levy. Residents would end up paying roughly $12 per year for every $100,000 in property owned in the proposed area.
The district will be hosting an informational meeting to explain their services as well as the proposed mail levy on September 18th at West Middle School beginning at 7p.m.
