Chamber Survey Favors Airport Terminal
The President and C-E-O of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce says most chamber members who have so far responded to a survey on the county’s sixth-penny sales tax ballot proposals seem to favor a new terminal for the Cheyenne Airport. Steenburgen says the chamber survey is continuing through Friday, but among those responding so far about 66 percent say they support the $4.8 Million dollar allocation that would go towards the terminal from the sixth- penny tax. The total cost of a new terminal has been estimated at $17.5 million, with the balance of that money coming from the airport board and state and federal grants. Steenburgen says about 23 percent of respondents opposed the funding in the chamber survey. Steenburgen says he will release the complete survey results on the terminal and the other projects proposed for sixth penny funding once the tally of chamber members is complete.
