Larimer County: Group Pushing for Mental Health Ballot Question

A group called People for a Healthier Larimer County (PHLC) is lobbying for a .025 sales tax increase (25 cents per $100) to build a new mental health facility. The 51,000 SF building would offer 24-hour mental health services. Currently, residents experiencing a mental health crisis have few options; they can go to the emergency room or the Weld County Crisis Center.

PHLC is chaired by former State Senator Peggy Reeves and former County Commissioner Cheryl Olson. The ballot language has not been finalized. The Board of County Commissioners will consider putting the question on the November ballot in August. For more information visit: http://www.larimerbehavioralhealth.com
