What Do You Want For Lakewood?
As a Lakewood resident, you have a lot of say in how your city operates, what kind ofservices it provides and how it spends your tax dollars. Lakewood City Council is discussing a potential ballot question for November about the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) and how it affects funding for additional City services including open space purchases. Lakewood has launched a community conversation about this, so get involved and let us know what you think by taking a survey, asking a question or learning more atLakewoodTogether.org/LakewoodFunding.
