Two Towns Too Small to Not Share Schools’ Cash


There’s a storm brewing in Carbon Valley, and it has nothing to do with a quick moving monsoon typical of the season. Frederick is mad at Firestone, and town leaders are airing the dirty laundry in public. Firestone says its holding onto $145,000 from development fees that was earmarked for St. Vrain Valley School District needs. Although Firestone doesn’t have an agreement with the school district, Frederick, in a public letter, essentially called Firestone selfish in hoarding money from its Carbon Valley counterparts.

What’s Next: Not much unless Firestone listens to Frederick’s just logic. These communities are too small to try building schools on their own.
