Park County voters nix sales tax

Nov 7, 2012

The Mayor of Cody says residents in her community can expect to see budget cuts and a reduction of services following the failure of a one-percent sales tax which was intended to address infrastructure needs of Park County. 

Mayor Nancy Tia Brown says her community will see some changes: “It was a time for the Cody voters or the county voters to let us know if they wanted to continue things as they were or make adjustments.  And we are going to have to make some adjustments.”

Brown says there will be little relief from the state, which is also facing budget cuts.  Park County is one of just two Wyoming counties that have never approved a one percent sales tax for county services.
