Town councilors and county commissioners made some headway at their joint meeting Monday as the finish line draws near for deciding which specific purpose excise tax applications make it onto the November ballot and for what dollar amount.

The Jackson Town Council and Teton County Board of County Commissioners have met regularly over the past few months to deliberate everything from the applications’ merit to the amount of money they should ask voters to approve over a four- to five-year span beginning in late 2024. Part of that is deciding how much money to allot to each project versus the amount the applicants requested.
