Letter: No federal funds
Question No. 1 provides a great opportunity for the agricultural community and all of us as residents of Carson Valley. We have a choice, an option to preserve the natural beauty of this Valley as we know it today. The quarter-cent sales tax provides the vehicle that allows the entire community to share in this conservation program.
The one concern I have is that federal government funds are not solicited or accepted.
It is my hope, that in the event question No. 1 is approved by the voters, the appointed commission charged with implementing this program, will concentrate their efforts and search for funding from private foundations and institutions to supplement the sales tax fund.
Ultimately, the passing of question No. 1 will insure the appreciation of all privately owned property here in this beautiful, special Carson Valley.
