I’m in Sterling this afternoon to sign SB21-229 which puts more funds into the Rural Jump-Start Zone Grant Program that will offer state tax relief to new businesses and their employees that locate in rural areas of Colorado that are facing economic challenges. These measures are on top of statewide sales tax relief for all restaurants and tax relief for everyone including reducing the assessment rate for the property taxes on your home, an even greater reduction in property taxes for land used for agricultural and renewable energy, reducing vehicle registration fees by $11 per vehicle, ensuring seniors don’t have to pay state tax on social security income, and eliminating the need for tens of thousands of small businesses to have to even file no less pay the business personal property tax.
Shredded documents get new life as biodegradable seedling pots
The problem with most biodegradable plant pots is that they don’t actually biodegrade. Usually made of wood or peat fibers, most of the pots also are treated with wax to keep them whole until they’re planted in the ground; trouble is, the wax often works all too well.
