Ketchum voters will decide on May 17 whether to approve an initiative by the city to raise local sales taxes to fund a variety of programs to add to the stock of workforce housing.

The ballot will ask citizens a two-part question:

  • Should the city add “workforce housing provision and support” to a list of authorized uses for local-option taxes?
  • Should the city increase local-option taxes by percentage-point increases of .75% on retail sales, 2% on lodging, 2% on by-the-drink liquor and 1% on building materials, with the extra tax revenue going to exclusively fund workforce-housing projects?
