Vail Daily letter: ‘Yes’ for Edwards proposal

If you are a qualified voter in the Edwards Metro District, I urge you to vote “yes” on Ballot Initiative 5A. The increased sales tax will help fund much-needed improvements to our area infrastructure, providing better access for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. This is a great way to leverage local resources (10 percent of cost) with Colorado Department of Transportation funding (80 percent) and support from Eagle County (10 percent). If we pass up this opportunity, it may not come around again for many years. The relatively minor sales tax increase will still leave current tax rates lower than most areas of Eagle County, and the improvements will positively impact the community for the foreseeable future.
