To ensure that current customers continue to receive reliable water services, the North Weld County Water District (NWCWD) needs to make significant investments in infrastructure.
This November, voters will determine whether to fund these investments through rate increases or property taxes. The November ballot includes a 5-mill property tax increase to raise $5 million annually, which would cost a homeowner $13.33 per month on a home valued at $450,000.
