In Favor Of Tax Increase

To The Editor:

As a 35-yr. resident, who fought several years ago to retain the successful 25-yr. EPURA program—which would, of course, be extremely valuable to our community at this time, I am now supporting the 1% sales tax increase as a viable alternative and am encouraging all voters to do likewise.

We need the money from this increase to not only retain our quality of life in Estes Park but also to effect necessary upgrades and repairs—including damage caused by our September 2013 flood.

If we don’t choose this minor, temporary tax (which will apply to visitor purchases as well as our own), we will most likely be faced with a permanent property tax increase!
