PF)—Polls will be open until 7:00 p.m. for a Garfield County Special Election. On the ballot, a proposed countywide sales tax increase. The proposition calls for a 0.30%, or 30 cents for every $100 spent, increase to the county sales tax rate for 15 years. The revenue would be earmarked to fund the operation, maintenance, construction, equipping and improvement of the Garfield County Detention Facility. GCDF has an operational capacity of 193 beds and a design capacity of 232 beds and has been over capacity for more than 11 years since its 2005 opening. Included in the resolution are the addition of 82 beds in dormitory-style housing and 16,000 additional square feet; the renovation of part of the current 45,000-square-foot building; and construction of medical, administrative and visitation spaces, as well as a space for educational and religious programs.
