A Petition to require Boulder, Colorado County Commissioners to fully fund all county road maintenance
During the past two decades, the Boulder County Commissioners have increasingly abrogated their responsibility of fully maintaining all county roads - including those in county subdivisions. These are roads that were totally paid for by the residents of those subdivisions, given to the County Government for FREE, accepted by the County Government with their promise to fully maintain said roads, and for which the County has implemented and collected taxes for the maintenance of those roads for decades. Now, the county, after years of declining financial support and physical maintenance of said roads, has redefined the word maintenance and maintains that the subdivision residents must pay, again, the cost of maintaining their roads. Residents must now pay a THIRD time for their own roads - once when initially constructed, secondly over the decades via taxes supposedly for their maintenance, and now a third time via a special assessment. Via this petition, the undersigned hereby petition the Boulder County Commissioners to fulfill their moral, ethical, and perhaps legal obligation to meet their guaranteed commitments when they accepted ownership of the county subdivision roads. We petition the Boulder County Commissioners to fully maintain all county roads, including those in subdivisions for which they have accepted ownership utilizing funds from within their existing, ongoing budget - without implementation any additional fees, assessments, or taxes of any kind. Full maintenance is specifically to include road replacement, overlay, chip sealing and any and all other maintenance and upkeep activities for said roads.
