The Crestone Emergency Services District was formed to unite the Baca Grande and Crestone Fire Departments as well as the Crestone Baca Ambulance Service and Search and Rescue.  The mil levy to fund this district (CrESD) was defeated by a 2-vote margin last year.  Private citizens petitioned to have an election to dissolve the district.  In a vote of confidence for CrESD, this measure has been soundly defeated by a 2-to-1 vote.
