Breckenridge discusses tax on lift tickets
April 20, 2009
BRECKENRIDGE (AP) ” Breckenridge officials are discussing a tax on lift tickets to help the town pay for parking and transportation.
Councilman Jeffrey Bergeron says the town is interested in the tax because other communities have it and Breckenridge’s budget is hurting. Breckenridge resort CEO Lucy Kay says the resort currently funds transportation and parking services, but that some municipalities cover those in other ski communities.
However, Kay says it’s not the right time for the proposal.
A tax on lift tickets would have to be put on the ballot and be approved by voters. Breckenridge officials have discussed such a tax in previous years.
