Will Grand Junction residents vote on a measure to pay for a new public safety center this November? That's a question City Council will answer this week.

Wednesday night, council members will decide whether or not to move forward on a ballot measure that would increase the city sales tax from 2.75% to 3.00% with that money going to fund a new public safety center.

City officials say unlike the failed question on the 2008 ballot, any potential question on the ballot this year would not include a TABOR override piece.

They say if council member do vote to put the measure on the ballot, they will then choose one of five plans that detail what the project would include and how much it would cost. Those options range in total price from $53.8 million up to $78.5 million.
