RESOLUTION NO. 2016-09
A RESOLUTION SUPPORTING HOUSE BILL 16-1155.
WHEREAS, the Colorado General Assembly is currently considering House Bill (“HB”) 1155, which would authorize a county to designate a four-lane controlled-access highway that is located in both unincorporated and incorporated areas of the county as a primary road of the county highway system, and, in connection therewith, specifying the jurisdiction, control, and duties of the county and of a municipality through which the highway passes with respect to such highway; and
WHEREAS, the Town and Weld County have entered into intergovernmental agreements pursuant to which the County will be constructing major improvements to Weld County 49 in order to provide an efficient traffic corridor in both the incorporated and unincorporated areas of Weld County through which it passes; and
WHEREAS, given this significant investment by Weld County for this roadway, and anticipating the County may similarly improve other roadways within the County that are necessary or desirable to the efficient flow of traffic, the Board of Trustees of the Town of Keenesburg finds the authorization that would be conferred on counties by HB 1155 appropriate and necessary to maintaining such corridors in the future; and
WHEREAS, the Board further finds the authorization to be conferred by HB 1155 would directly benefit residents of the Town of Keenesburg, as it will encourage Weld County to invest in primary roads within the County that are used on a regular basis by Town residents.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE TOWN OF KEENESBURG, COLORADO:
The Board of Trustees of the Town of Keenesburg hereby expresses its support of HB 1155 and urges the Colorado General Assembly to adopt it during this 2016 legislative session.
INTRODUCED, READ, and ADOPTED this 16th day of February, 2016.
TOWN OF KEENESBURG, COLORADO
