Vail to send tobacco tax proposals to voters
VAIL — The Vail Town Council on Tuesday voted 6-0 to ask voters to impose new cigarette and tobacco taxes to voters in November. Council member Kevin Foley was absent for the vote.
If approved, the town would impose a $3 per pack tax on cigarettes. All other tobacco and nicotine products would have a 40% tax levied.
According to the ballot language, the tax could collect as much as $1 million in the first year.
If approved by voters, the revenue would go into the town’s general fund.
