La Plata County tax revenue from oil and gas production that supplements real estate tax has plummeted in recent years.
The county tax assessor has repeatedly called attention to this loss of revenue, but little or nothing has been done to find new revenue sources and/or significantly reduce expenses.
Immediate remedial action is vital. A county treasurer with the invaluable business experience of Allison Morrissey is needed now to weigh options and find the answer.
