Price City Council members approved a resolution supporting the .25% Local Option General Sales Tax on Wednesday. The resolution encourages Carbon County to submit the proposal to voters in November as well as encourage voters to support the proposal.
It was explained at the meeting that the revenue from the tax would be used for the transportation district, including maintaining roads throughout the county. The tax will add .0025 per dollar tax on general goods excluding food.
Carbon County Commissioners also spoke of the tax at a recent meeting. Commissioners stressed that they would like groups to discuss the proposed tax and communicate their feelings on the matter. Jae Potter recommended that groups communicate their opinions and concerns to any of the commissioners via phone, email or letter.
All council members signed a letter stating their support of the resolution.
