The specific purpose excise tax (SPET) and related community project proposals will be discussed at two public meetings on Monday, Jan. 23.

 

  • 10 a.m., Teton County Commissioners’ Chambers: County commissioners will discuss the SPET during their weekly Voucher Meeting. No public comment or formal board action will be taken.

  • 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Teton County Commissioners’ Chambers: The Jackson Town Council and Teton Board of County Commissioners will meet in a special joint session to take public comment and discuss community infrastructure projects that have been proposed for the tax ballot.

 

Project descriptions and background can be found in the staff report at the following link: /cc/docs/StaffReports/2017-JIM/0123/20170123%20JIM%20-%20SPET%20Discussion%20revised%20with%20attachments.pdf. In addition, Central Wyoming College and St. John’s Living Center will each have time during the 2 p.m. meeting to present information on their capital facilities project proposals.

What is the SPET? The SPET is a 1 percent sales tax that has been collected for specific, voter-approved projects in Teton County since the 1980s. Over the decades, the Jackson Hole community has chosen to use SPET funds to construct facilities, infrastructure projects, and public amenities that would otherwise require other sources of revenue, such as bonds or increased property taxes. The tax generates an estimated $10 million to $12 million a year and is paid by visitors and residents on most goods and services, excluding food. In total, the SPET has generated more than $200 million.

 

Teton County voters will have the opportunity in May to cast votes for or against specific projects, which in the past have included jail facilities, the Rec Center, waste water treatment, street construction, library improvements, schools, hospital projects and securing the West Broadway landslide.
