Referendum Against Ordinance 2018-04 Found Sufficient

A Referendum was filed against Ordinance 2018-04.

Pursuant to CRS Section 31-11-109, the City Clerk has examined the filed referendum petitions and the attached affidavits.  The petitions must be signed by at least 5% of the registered electors of the City of Salida, which is 227 signatures.  After examining the signature lines it was found to contain 279 valid signatures.  Therefore, the petition is sufficient.

The next step in the process is for the Ordinance to be reconsidered, by the City Council, at the next Regular Meeting following the petition period.  If the City Council votes against the measure, the Ordinance will not take effect.  If the City Council affirms their vote, the Ordinance will then be taken to a Special Election to be held not less than 60 days and not more than 150 days after the final determination of petition sufficiency.
