COLORADO SPRINGS - At his monthly news conference Tuesday morning, Mayor Steve Bach denounced a recently passed joint resolution by the Colorado Springs City Council and the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners to form a regional storm water entity.
The mayor disagrees with asking voters for a tax increase to pay for the backlog of projects. He also takes issue with council and the commissioners for not consulting with him over the issue.
He emphasized that the city is committed to working with other communities in terms of scheduling projects so as to take advantage if any cost savings that may arise and to ensure symmetry in projects that cross jurisdictional boundaries.
