Slide Facts

The Town of Jackson estimates a SPET period of approximately 6 months would generate the $6 million needed to stabilize and protect only the public infrastructure currently at risk. No public funding will be used to subsidize commercial property owners. These property owners will be responsible for mitigation of slide impacts on private property.

The SPET Ballot

The SPET ballot was unanimously approved by the Jackson Town Council and county commissioners as the best way of financing the necessary repairs. SPET funding is temporary funding, with two-thirds of these collections being paid for by visitors and guests.
