Voters defeat tax ballot issues in 2 Wyoming counties
Nov. 08, 2017
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming voters in two counties have soundly defeated tax increase proposals to benefit local community colleges.
Voters in Campbell County on Tuesday defeated a proposed quarter-cent excise tax for Gillette College and economic development.
Proponents of the tax said it would provide the college with a stable form of revenue.
In Laramie County, voters rejected paying higher property taxes to fund $29.5 million in building projects at Laramie County Community College.
The money would have gone toward a new student dormitory, renovation of a fine arts building and renovation of a recreation center.
