*Referendum 2B TABOR Notice Error*

A printing error occurred on the 2018 General Election TABOR notice under Steamboat Springs Referendum 2B.  The financial information for Referendum 2A was inadvertently printed under 2B as well as 2A.  No financial information should have appeared under 2B since it is a tax that is currently in place.  Referendum 2B, if passed, will extend the tax for another 10 years after its current expiration of December 31, 2019.
