Consideration of a Resolution Approving a Proposition to Impose a 1% Specific Purpose Sales and Use Tax
The City of Green River has been working with Sweetwater County and its municipalities on a potential specific purpose tax initiative. After numerous committee meetings, stakeholder meetings, public meetings and public surveys the committee has drafted the attached resolution that would add this proposition to the November 8, 2022 general election ballot. If approved by the voters, this initiative would allow for the collection of $83,511,570 countywide, with the City of Green River receiving $22,027,627 of this revenue to be used for the following: (1) paving, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and rehabilitation of water, sewer and storm sewer infrastructure in various locations on the following streets - westbound Riverview Drive (from Hackberry Street to Locust Street), eastbound Riverview Drive ( from Locust Street to Fir Street), Bridger Drive (East Teton Boulevard to West Teton Boulevard), Faith Drive, Evans Drive (from Faith Drive to Faith Drive), Easy Street (from Hutton Street through Easy Circle), Wilkes Drive (from Hutton Street to Evans Drive), Indian Hills Drive (from Shoshone Avenue to Uinta Drive) and (2) Cape seal selected streets to preserve the integrity of the asphalt surface.
