Warriors Mark subdivision election set for Oct. 1
BRECKENRIDGE – The Warriors Mark annexation issue will go to a vote of the people.
After months of fierce debate among homeowners in the subdivision south of Breckenridge, a district court judge has set aside Oct. 1 as the date for an annexation election.
The proposed annexation includes two special conditions imposed by the Breckenridge Town Council.
The first would require each property owner in Warriors Mark and Warriors Mark West to pay a maximum of $90 – a total of $30,000 – to make street improvements and obtain rights-of-way and easements. The $30,000 is half the actual estimated cost of the improvements.
The second condition listed on the ballot indicates that the town of Breckenridge will not be required to plow snow from or maintain Silver Queen Drive.
The polling place for the election is at the home of Sigurd and Carol Rockne, at 0547 Broken Lance Dr. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
To be eligible to vote in the election, a person must be a landowner in the proposed annexation area – whether they live full-time in the subdivision is irrelevant – must be registered to vote, or be authorized by resolution to vote on behalf of a corporation, trust or similar entity that owns land in the annexation area. The last day to register to vote is Sept. 3.
Under the court order issued last week, voters only can vote once, regardless of how many properties they own in the subdivision.
Non-resident landowners who won’t be present for the election can request an absentee ballot via the town’s Web site, http://www.townof breckenridge.com; at the town clerk’s office at 150 Ski Hill Road, by e-mail to email@example.com; or by calling (970) 453-3167. Walk-in absentee voting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 19 to 27 at the town hall, 150 Ski Hill Rd.
Absentee ballots must be received no later than 7 p.m. Oct. 1.
