From the Steamboat Today:
Steamboat Springs — Voters in Steamboat Springs resoundingly have embraced the plan to spend millions of dollars of the city's lodging tax on local trail projects and a new promenade on Yampa Street.
With the approval of 71 percent of city voters, the 1 percent tax paid by lodging guests will be dedicated to those uses for the next decade.
“I think it's a great thing for our community, and it's going to bring a lot of value to our visitors,” Bike Town USA Director Doug Davis said after the election results were tallied. “I'm happy and proud our groups worked so hard on this.”
Davis said cheers at Carl's Tavern suddenly turned to a discussion of the work that must be done in the days, weeks and years to come.
