Vail tables proposal to double lift ticket tax for parking

62

VAIL, Colo. | Though some Vail officials have called the lack of parking in the city a crisis, increased lift ticket taxes won’t be paying for more space.

The Vail Daily reports (https://bit.ly/2bGYkuY ) that Vail City Council member Dick Cleveland had asked the board to consider doubling the ticket tax, which generated about $4.7 million in 2015, to help pay for more projects but other council members shut that suggestion down on Tuesday.

Council member Jen Mason said the town has too close and important of a relationship with Vail Resorts to rush into a tax proposal, as they would if the issue made the November ballot.

Council members say they will continue to look into the issue and perhaps consider the tax for a later election.
