On January 28, 2020, the Board of Trustees adopted a resolution referring a ballot issue to the voters for inclusion on the April 7, 2020 ballot.
Ballot Issue 2A: To Opt-Out of Senate Bill 152
SHALL THE TOWN OF FREDERICK, WITHOUT INCREASING TAXES BY THIS MEASURE, AND TO RESTORE LOCAL AUTHORITY THAT WAS DENIED TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS BY THE COLORADO GENERAL ASSEMBLY AND FOSTER A MORE COMPETITIVE MARKETPLACE, BE AUTHORIZED TO PROVIDE HIGH-SPEED INTERNET, INCLUDING IMPROVED HIGH BANDWIDTH SERVICES BASED ON NEW TECHNOLOGIES, TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES, AND/OR CABLE TELEVISION SERVICES TO RESIDENTS, BUSINESSES, SCHOOLS, LIBRARIES, NON-PROFIT ENTITIES AND OTHER USERS OF SUCH SERVICES EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY WITH PUBLIC OR PRIVATE SECTOR PARTNERS, AS EXPRESSLY PERMITTED BY ARTICLE 27, TITLE 29 OF THE COLORADO REVISED STATUTES?
____NOWhat does this mean?
Senate Bill 152 limits a local government's authority to provide high-speed internet, including improved high bandwidth services based on new technologies, telecommunications services and cable television services either directly or indirectly with public or private sector partners to residents, businesses, schools and other users. Ballot Question 2A is posed to the registered electors of Frederick to override the restrictions and restore local authority to provide those services either directly or indirectly.
If 2A passes, what does that mean?
The Town would have the ability to expand, enhance or create new and faster broadband services for residents, businesses and schools either publicly or the more preferred option of a partnership with a private company should the opportunity arise.
At this time, there are no plans for municipal run services. Voter approval of 2A would provide the flexibility for the Town in the case services currently provided are inadequate for the needs of the community.
If 2A does not pass, what does that mean?
Senate Bill 152 will continue to limit the Town's ability to enhance broadband services in the Town of Frederick. The Town will not be able to create partnerships to bring faster speeds to the community.
