Brownstein Client Alert, September 19, 2017

On September 8, 2017, a Jefferson County District Court ("Court") essentially struck down Ballot Question 300 (“BQ300”), approved by the Wheat Ridge ("the City") voters on November 3, 2015.

The ballot question was an amendment to the City Charter which required that any agreement to share tax increment revenues must be ratified by the Wheat Ridge City Council at a regularly scheduled public hearing, and, if the amount exceeds $2.5 million, must be ratified by Wheat Ridge voters.
