Huerfano County Notice of Election Booklet error. The last bulleted item in the Pro Statement should read $100, 000 (not $100,00) per market value home (instead of actual home value). The corrected statement should read as follows:
An approximate $16 million bond, partnered with a state funded BEST grant of approximately $21 million, results in a $37 million new, state of the art school and needed repairs to our other school facilities costing taxpayers only $8.05 a month per $100,000 of market home value. Passing this bond is an investment in the future of our students and in the Walsenburg and Gardner communities.
