Weld County Recognized as a Taxpayer Friendly Community

Weld County is in the news for the Taxpayer Friendly Community Award they received at Annual Meeting.

ColoradoPolitics.com picked up the story quoting ACCE National Director Jon Russell saying,

“Weld County is the Gold Standard for fiscal responsibility for localities across the country, having saved taxpayers more than $420 million since 2002. With no sales tax and no debt, I can think of no county more worthy of the very first Taxpayer Friendly Community Award than Weld County, CO.”

Bizwest.com also posted about the award quoting Commissioner Kirkmeyer,

“The commissioners have been diligent in our pursuit of reducing the tax burden to our constituents,” Barbara Kirkmeyer, a Weld County commissioner, said in a prepared statement. “And we will remain strong in our commitment to pay cash as we build so future generations of Weld County taxpayers will not be saddled with any debt.”

Congratulations to Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer and the taxpayers of Weld County!
