5A: Local Marketing District — Vote Yes

1A, 2A: Broadband — Vote Yes

Moffat County voters have the opportunity to vote on Referred Ballot Measure 5A when the ballots are sent to your homes in mid-October. Review your ballot and vote "yes" to be a part of our future.

This measure allows Moffat County to form a Local Marketing District.

Craig Moffat Economic Development Partnership, Craig Chamber of Commerce and Moffat County Tourism Association are writing a community-based plan that incorporates the common goals of all three organizations. We know this is the best way to work together for Moffat County. Board members of all three organizations have had to plan well by honoring the specific mission of each organization and creating a future with collaborative goals that will make a difference.
