Boulder County and affiliated cities participate in COGCC Mill Levy Rulemaking

Boulder County has once again teamed up with the cities of Longmont and Lafayette as an “Affiliated Local Governments” group


Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County has once again teamed up with the cities of Longmont and Lafayette as an “Affiliated Local Governments” group that will participate in the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission's Mill Levy Rulemaking.

County staff and officials are spearheading efforts in this rulemaking process to urge the COGCC Commission to raise the Conservation Levy to the full 1.7 mills allowed by statute.

Recent projections of significant revenue shortfalls at the COGCC, compounded with increases in the production of oil and gas across the state, highlight the critical importance of a Conservation Levy rate that allows the COGCC to foster responsible development of Colorado’s resources while protecting public health and the environment. - excerpt from the Affiliated Local Governments’ Prehearing Statement.

The Mill Levy Rulemaking hearing is scheduled for Monday, Feb.12, 2018, starting at 9 a.m. More information about the Mill Levy Rulemaking can be found on COGCC’s website at: http://cogcc.state.co.us/reg.html#/rules/levyrulemaking.
