The Daily Sentinel reports that at a meeting Tuesday, all seven trustees said they wanted to see draft language for a November ballot measure. A public-led initiative is in the works, but trustees would rather have their own to ensure the question is worded in a way that will be easiest to handle for the western Colorado town of 2,600 people.
Trustee Susan L’Hommedieu noted that in 2014, a number of ballots were missing the retail marijuana question. Voters passed a companion question that set up a taxing structure for retail marijuana that year, even though the sales question failed.
