reflects a challenging fiscal landscape. The county has historically derived the majority of its property tax revenue from natural gas and oil production, which has seen dramatic declines in price and production nationwide over the past several years. The result, compounded by a statewide reduction in the residential property tax assessment rate, has been nearly a 50% decline in property taxes since 2010.

The 2018 budget reflects an increasingly constrained revenue picture for La Plata County, while demand for services continue to grow.
