Larimer Humane Society turns in signatures for tax increase issue

(Ft. Collins Coloradoan) — Larimer Humane Society is one step closer to a new shelter.

The local animal welfare organization submitted 18,000 signatures on a petition asking voters for a sales tax increase on the November ballot.

If at least 11,300 of those signatures are deemed valid by the Larimer County Clerk & Recorder, voters will choose whether or not to add a penny-on-$10 sales tax in Larimer County to generate the $13 million needed to build the proposed 38,802-square-foot animal shelter. The increase would go into effect in January 2014 and sunset in six years or less.
