CHEYENNE – The final $130 million sixth-penny sales tax ballot that will go out to voters Nov. 2 was approved by the Laramie County Board of Commissioners at its Tuesday meeting, grouping together projects that are similar in three different areas: public safety, infrastructure and community enhancements.

After months of conversations between city and county staff and local elected officials, the decision on whether to approve these measures will be left in the hands of voters. But the county commissioners hope the way the ballot is set up this year will make the decision easier for Laramie County residents.
