Did you know that YOU (the taxpayers of Ouray County) actually own the building, equipment, and medical trade fixtures in MMC?
Ouray County residents should have begun receiving their mail-in ballots over the weekend. As you take the time to research the issues to fill out your ballot as a well-informed voter, please take the time to read the below release from the Ouray County Regional Service Authority regarding the importance of voting YES on 6A. If you are not familiar with the RSA, here is a short bio from their website:
The following information was recently shared by the RSA, and we wanted to make sure our patients had the opportunity to read it so that they knew how important it is to vote YES on Ballot Issue 6A to help keep medical services present in Ouray County.
Per the RSA (see excel document below), if they would have continued their 1/4 mill funding request that was in place the last 10 years, there would not have been enough funds for projects or to replace the parking lot or sidewalk, both of which need attention in the next decade. The requested 3/8 mill will provide funding at average projected budget level for 10 years and will allow for funds to replace the parking lot and sidewalk.
Thank you for taking the time to be a well informed voter and for supporting keeping medical services in Ouray County.
