Baca County Ballot Question 1A:

“Without increasing taxes, shall Baca County have the right to provide advanced services (high speed internet), cable television services and telecommunications services, either directly or indirectly with public, and/or private sector partners, to residents, businesses, schools, libraries, health care facilities, nonprofit entities, and other users of such services located within the boundaries of unincorporated Baca County as expressly permitted by Title 29, Article 27 of the Colorado Revised Statutes?”

A vote in favor of this measure allows the county to can provide, facilitate or partner with service providers for high-speed internet, cable television and telecommunications service. Cities and counties in Colorado have sought approval from voters to create their own utility for these services to provide broadband to residents.
