Voters will be asked to determine the fates of three projects proposed for the county’s special projects excise tax when they go to the polls in two weeks.  This year, the proposed projects involve the purchase of US Forest Service Property adjacent the Forest Supervisor’s office in north Jackson for the extension of Mercill Avenue, Construction of a pathway along Wyoming Highway 22 and West Broadway, and environmental mitigation and monitoring at the Teton County Landfill which has recently been found to be leeching toxic chemicals.  Voters will have the opportunity to approve any or all of the three projects. The number of projects approved does not impact the amount of sales tax paid, but rather the number of years the tax is collected before new projects are put forward to the voters.  Combined, the proposed project this year would cost slightly more than $32¼ million. A total of about $10-million dollars is raised by that tax each year.

    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
