Meridian Ranch Metropolitan District ("MRMD") is what is commonly called a financing District. MRMD does not provide any services to residents, but was established to issue the debt to finance the improvements that serve the community. The debt is then paid off over time by the sale of water and sewer taps, and property taxes. MRMD has arranged for the provision of all necessary services through an intergovernmental agreement with Meridian Service Metropolitan District. Membership on the Board of Directors of MRMD is open to residents of the Meridian Ranch community.
The Board of Directors provides oversight to the Meridian Ranch Metropolitan District.
It is comprised of five people who are elected to four-year terms. The current board of directors and their term end dates are:
- Butch Gabrielski – 2023
- Bill Gessner – 2023
- Mike Fenton – 2023
- Wayne Reorda – 2025
- Robert Guevara – 2025
Therefore, in 2023, there are three positions coming open for election. In accordance with Colorado election law, the positions will be filled by the people receiving the three highest vote totals.
