The Gallagher Fire

The Gallagher Fire 1

The Greater Brighton Fire Protection District is considering a ballot question for the November 2020 ballot to stabilize the residential assessment rate (RAR) at 7.15%. With the RAR projected to drop to 5.8% in 2021, the Fire District is facing losses over $1 Million. It would continue to suffer losses each year over the next several years due to these unintended consequences of the Gallagher Amendment. The Colorado legislature in their 2020 session also realized the Gallagher Amendment is not achieving the original intent. A statewide ballot question will also be on the November ballot. The ballot question that we are considering would be specifically for the Greater Brighton Fire Protection District.

These losses will significantly affect fire districts across the state. Brighton Fire is not considering a tax increase. This ballot measure simply maintains/stabilizes where we are currently in revenue concerning the RAR. Please watch this short informational video about the Gallagher Amendment and how you can help your local fire district and first responders.

Now more than ever, the safety of our students and staff is a top priority in 27J.

We are following all guidelines and safety measures to ensure that our facilities and schools are safe for our returning, in-person learning, students and staff. Our custodial team has been working hard during this time to make sure all buildings meet the highest safety standards.

We are prepared to have multiple protocols in place to provide further protection for our returning students and staff. We call this our “Layers of Protection” because we know there are multiple safety precautions we all must take in order to stay safe and keep our schools open and functioning.

We look forward to the start of this school year and cannot wait to see our student’s faces, whether it is in-person or online!
