The City of Cheyenne’s Sixth Penny Webpage shows residents what to expect from 2021 ballot
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The early voting for the Sixth Penny Tax Proposals opens on September 17th. Residents now have access to resources on the City of Cheyenne’s Sixth Penny Webpage to stay informed on this year’s election.
“It is very explanatory as far as what is each ballot, where the money goes, and I think that is very important. We really wanted to be as transparent as possible, because we want the voters to know what they are voting for,” said Jeff White, City Councilman.
Visitors to the site can check out past projects completed from the tax. The webpage breaks down the various proposals for each municipality, so voters can see the available projects, costs and descriptions.
Along with varying proposals, the site features a Frequently Asked Questions page and an informational guide on what to expect from the 2021 Ballot.
White explained the value of having informed voters during election-time, considering the Sixth Penny projects have created monumental impacts on the community in former years.
“Legislature gives municipalities very little flexibility when it comes to raising revenue for projects. The Sixth Penny is very critical in growing the community and helping us move forward.”
