Cheyenne DDA Mill Levy Vote Tuesday
The proposed levy would double the current 10 mills per year to 20 mills for each of the next four years. Supporters say the extra money may be needed because of uncertainty over city funding in future years.The proposal would raise roughly $320,000 annually for the authority in it's efforts to promote downtown Cheyenne, according to DDA Board President Hans Seitz..
The money would go to economic development efforts, the facade program, which works to improve the appearence of the downtown area, and capital improvement grants.
The 230 commercial property owners in the district will be the only ones eligible to cast ballots in the election. But some will be able to cast multiple ballots based on the amount of property they own. Voting is slated for 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Historic Depot in downtown Cheyenne.
