Copper Mountain Update

Tom Malmgren

The Copper Mountain Consolidated Metropolitan District building is now occupied by our local fire department, the water and wastewater department, the cable television deparment and the administration functions of the District.

The Metro District is similar to the town government functions, but Copper is not a town. We are an unincorporated part of Summit County and thus law enforcement is the County Sheriff. Planning is

carried out by the Summit County Planning Dept. Building permits are through the Summit County Building Department. But the Copper Mountain Fire Department (one of the departments of our Metro District) is very involved with the code enforcement and building plan review from the fire protection perspective. If you have questions about the District call the offices at 968-2537. Operating our own TV system is a very unique aspect of the District.

This new facility is a beautiful building that the taxpayers of the District can and will be very proud of. This building and all of the District functions are funded through taxpayers and user fees from the various enterprise funds.

With owners throughout the county recently receiving their real estate tax bills the various mill levy assessments for all taxing enties will receive focus of attention. Realtors throughout the county should be familiar with these taxing entities and be able to explain the functions of each when owners inquire about the tax bill. Know the information so that you can assist your customers.

The real estate activity at Copper has perked up with more prospects inquiring about opportunities and more showings. Be sure to research the properties that are available and call one of the offices here at Copper if you have questions.

The skiing is getting better and better with the recent snowfalls.

Happy Skiing,
