The City Portales will soon be holding a special mail in election, designed to help economic growth in our community and it doesn't cost the taxpayers anything. A new Ordinance proposes to allow the use of existing local economic development taxes to assist new retail business that do not compete with existing businesses! Passage of this Ordinance must be by a majority vote of the voters and will help Portales attract and help start-up retail and arts or cultural business in areas that we don't currently have. It's a huge opportunity for us, but you must vote YES, on the special election ballot that will be mailed to you in the next few weeks and return it to City Hall by mail or in person. Please vote YES to help encourage economic growth in our community. Once again there no new tax associated with this!
