April 5, 2010
DENVER (AP) – Colorado voters are going to the polls on Tuesday for local elections to decide issues such as sales taxes and term limits.
The Colorado Municipal League says voters in at least 134 cities and towns will be voting on candidates and local ballot measures.
Nine cities and towns have sales or use tax measures on the ballot including Buena Vista, De Beque, Fruita, Garden City, Haxtun, Moffat, Morrison, New Castle, and Woodland Park.
Fruita proposes to impose a 5 percent sales tax on the sale of medical marijuana. If the measure passes, Fruita will be the first city in the state to impose a tax on that product.
