Council Approves Special Election on Downtown Development District Mill Rate

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Some downtown property owners will be voting next month on whether they want to continue their current property tax rates and fund the city of Casper’s Downtown Development Authority.

Casper City Council unanimously approved a resolution on Tuesday that triggers a special election scheduled for Nov. 5.

Voters will decide whether they want to continue a current annual assessment of 16 mills against property within the city’s Downtown Development District for another four-year period.

Casper mayor Kenyne Schlager says the money raised will go toward several Downtown Development Authority initiatives.

“The money collected from these mills will be used by the Downtown Development Authority to do things such as administrate the costs of that program, maybe landscaping and promotion of public events,” Schlager said.

DDA chief executive officer Renee Penton-Jones says, if the mill rate is approved by voters again, her agency would use the money raised to focus on several projects outlined in the city’s amended downtown strategic plan.

The special election will be held at the old Natrona County Courthouse at 200 N. Center St.
