Denver East High School
DENVER — Voters in Denver passed three proposals that will provide money to the city’s schools as well as the general fund by overwhelming margins.
The ballot issues will raise taxes for money that will go to Denver Public Schools as well as the city’s coffers.
Measure 2A allows the city to be released from provisions of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) that would bring $68 million a year to the city.
Proposal 3A is a $49 million mill levy and 3B is a $466 million bond issue for DPS.
Homeowners in Denver will pay approximately $110 a year more per $100,000 of assessed value on their homes to pay for the new measures.
