Voters in Laramie County on Tuesday approved more than $ 128 million in 6th Dime projects.
All but one of the proposed votes were adopted, most with a wide margin. But Proposal 14, the Cheyenne City Minimum Income Guarantee for the Cheyenne Regional Airport, was only passed by a 0.68% margin.
Proposition 11, which would have given the City of Cheyenne $ 2 million to build multi-use fields and gymnastics facilities for youth and adult programs at appropriate venues, including next to the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center, failed with a 0.88 percent margin.
Due to the narrow margin of the votes, County Clerk Debra Lee said her office will recount the ballots for both proposals on Wednesday, November 3. She said the recount is expected to take several hours.
Approved proposals will be funded by a 1% sales and use tax, effective April 1, 2022 until the proposals are paid.
Laramie County has had a one percent specific use sales and use tax since 1986.
