VIDEO: A look at metropolitan districts in Colorado

DENVER–According to an opinion piece published in Complete Colorado last year, the state’s 1,663 metropolitan (metro) districts have a combined debt of over $19 billion, all of which is a financial obligation on those living within the borders of these special taxing entities.  But just what are these metro districts, and what do they actually do?

Megan Schrader from the editorial page of the Denver Post and former Colorado lawmaker Tim Leonard recently sat down with Complete Colorado Editor-in-Chief Mike Krause on the pubic affairs tv show Devil’s Advocate (airs Friday nights at 8:30 on Colorado Public Television, Channel 12) to discuss metro districts in Colorado, some of the problems they cause for taxpayers, and some possible solutions.  That video is below.
