With said revenues being allocated according to the advice of a citizens advisory group appointed by the New Castle Town Council and generated by imposing a one-time use tax at purchase of 3.5% of the retail value of any motor vehicle that requires registration, with said tax to be in effect from January 1, 2018 through and including December 31, 2025, and shall the town be authorized to collect and spend such revenues as a voter approved revenue change notwithstanding any revenue or expenditure limitations contained in Article X, Section 20 of the Colorado Constitution or any other law?
