The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is vying for $16 million of the sixth penny sales tax.
In less than three weeks voters will fill out their ballots in Laramie County. One of the biggest decisions they'll have to make is to support part, all or none of the sixth penny sales tax.
Four stand alone projects fall under the sixth penny sales tax. One of them is a $16 million project for the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens.
The $16 million would pay for several things. First, it would allow for repairs and improvements on the aging greenhouse. Second, it would cover the cost of making the gardens handicap accessible. Third, it would give the gardens more growing space. Finally, the money would fix roads leading into the garden.
Voters will fill out their ballots on August 21st.
