City To Hold Fifth Penny Meetings
The City of Cheyenne has scheduled three public meetings to get input on how fifth-penny sales tax revenues should be spent.
The meetings are scheduled for Thursday, June 19th at the Kiwanis Community House in Lion’s Park; Wednesday, June 25th at the Youth Activity and Community Center at 1317 Parsley Boulevard; and Tuesday July 1 at the Cheyenne Fire&Rescue Training Complex at 7222 Commerce Circle.
The Fifth Penny Tax is the primary funding source for street construction and maintenance in the city. It also provides funding for the Cheyenne Police Department, Fire&Rescue, Parks&Recreation and other city agencies.
Organizations such as United Way of Laramie County and the Cheyenne Animal Shelter also receive fifth penny funding. The tax is up for renewal by local voters in November.
All of the meetings will start at 6:15 p.m.
