GVR METROPOLITAN DISTRICT GOVERNANCE
Title 32 of the Colorado State Statutes provide for organization and operation of Special Districts. These Special Districts are created to fulfill a purpose that city, county or state governmental powers could not and/or do not provide economically. The Colorado general assembly provided for the organization of Special Districts providing select services and having the purposes, powers, and authority provided in the statutes to serve a public use and to promote the health, safety, prosperity, security, and general welfare of the inhabitants of such districts and of the people of the State of Colorado.
Districts have the statutory authority to: issue bonds or other debt obligations for special projects; own property; hire employees and contractors (attorneys, engineers, architects, accountants, construction companies, etc.); levy taxes to operate the District and pay for the retirement of debt; and in general, to fix fees, rate, tolls, penalties, or charges for services, programs or facilities.
The GVR Metropolitan District (“District”) is a quasi-municipal corporation and political subdivision of the State of Colorado organized in accordance with Title 32 of the Colorado Statutes. It has all the powers of a metropolitan district, and operates with an elected seven-person Board of Directors. The primary purpose of the District is to provide a stable funding source for the provision of municipal services within its service area, which may include the construction of streets, traffic and safety devices, water and sewer systems, and construction, mosquito control, covenant enforcement, and operation and maintenance of parks and recreation facilities and programs.
