Nonprofit forms to push cap tax for Nov. 5 election
Date posted: October 18, 2013
SHERIDAN — A nonprofit organization entitled Citizens for Infrastructure Improvements has been formed for the purpose of supporting continuance of the Capital Facilities Tax here in Sheridan County. The special election on the proposition to allow the tax to continue is scheduled for Nov. 5.
“It is imperative that the residents of Sheridan County understand the importance of the tax’s continuance, both to continue to replace aging infrastructure and to continue with job creation in the local economy,” the committee’s Chairman Dave Engels said. “With the availability of this money to match state and federal funds, we can make our local dollars extend that much further right here in Sheridan County.”
The committee plans to emphasize the importance of the tax’s continuance through the use of radio and newspaper ads, as well as to urge proponents to write letters to the editor in support.
Its treasurer is John Heyneman.
