It is up to us now. The tax hike has been added to the April ballot.

As reported by KJCT News, it was agreed on by all parties in the City Council. Grand Junction will now vote on a proposed sales tax increase.

The move would raise the sales tax from the current 2.7 per cent to 3 per cent. It would remain for the next 30 years. Proceed from this tax hike will go to building the new event center that has been in the works for roughly three years.

Grand Junction Mayor Phyllis Norris was quoted by KJCT as saying the following:

'It would really help our economy here, it would really push our restaurant and hotel, business and we are ready doing well in tourism that one area that's been a bright spot for us, Sometimes you have spend money to start generating money, anyone that is in business knows that, you've got to invest, in order to make more money.'

Well, voters what are we going to do?
