This April voters will decide whether to allow the city to retain revenue under TABOR to help pay off the Riverside Parkway Project. The Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce thinks it's a good idea and has begun campaigning in favor of it.
The Chamber plans to spend thousands of dollars educating voters about Amendment 'A' in an effort to get them to vote yes. Some of the reasons the Chamber says it supports the measure are because it does not raise taxes and it may save the taxpayers over $5 Million of interest costs on the bonds.
The Chamber plans to give presentations about the TABOR issue to anyone interested. They also plan to advertise on the radio and mail out information to registered voters in the city. The Chamber plans to spend $8,000 on direct mailing and is actively fund-raising to cover the costs of its campaign effort.
The Municipal Election is April 3rd.
