Voters there decided on two issues. Question </span>2B’s<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> focus was on whether to free up money to restore the Roaring Fork River and fund the removal of residents of a flood-prone trailer park. Voters approved that measure. A separate set of questions asked voters to fund a recreation center at Crown Mountain Park. That ballot measure failed.

The trailer homes sit in a floodplain and the local government is working on getting residents out of danger. They plan to replace the trailers with a public park. So far, a handful of trailers have been hauled away. Still, many residents remain. As Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports, they’re hoping to find inexpensive housing.</p><p> Mon, 28 Oct 2013 18:38:59 +0000 Marci Krivonen 9473 at http://kajx.org Residents of Basalt Mobile Home Park Seek New Homes as Construction Starts Basalt Area Homeowners Could See Biggest Tax Increase If Ballot Measures Pass http://kajx.org/post/basalt-area-homeowners-could-see-biggest-tax-increase-if-ballot-measures-pass <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">We’ve reported this week, starting Monday October </span>21<sup>st</sup><span style="line-height: 1.5;">, on the various tax increases proposed in measures in next month’s election. &nbsp;If all of them and Amendment 66 pass it could be one of the most expensive recent elections for many mid-valley voters. &nbsp;The question is </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">how</em><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> expensive</span></p><p></p> Thu, 24 Oct 2013 14:35:24 +0000 Elise Thatcher 9307 at http://kajx.org Basalt Area Homeowners Could See Biggest Tax Increase If Ballot Measures Pass Question 2B: Basalt Voters Mull Whether to Free Up Funds for Riverfront Park http://kajx.org/post/question-2b-basalt-voters-mull-whether-free-funds-riverfront-park <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">This week we’ve been reporting on some of the tax measures that are on the November ballot. One question Basalt voters will see concerns the restoration of the Roaring Fork River running through town. Question </span>2B<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> seeks permission from voters to issue $5 million worth of bonds.
