Vail Valley tax group eyes name change
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado ” A Vail Valley, Colorado group known as the Eagle County Taxpayers for Common Sense is in the process of changing its name after a Washington D.C.-based group threatened to sue them.
The D.C. group is called Taxpayers for Common Sense and recently sent a letter to the Eagle County organization threatening a lawsuit if their name wasn’t changed.
The group decided it would change its name, said Dick Froberg, the organization’s treasurer.
“We’ve got some ideas but didn’t like any of them,” Froberg said.
The members will meet next week and could decide what new name to use then, Froberg. The group is also in the process of planning a public meeting in July to discuss property taxes and the latest property valuations by the county.
“We’re just kind of reviewing the situation,” said Marshall Gordon, a member of the group.
A survey showed a good bit of support for local government action to bolster workforce housing in town. For now though, that support stops at supporting a new tax for funding.
