|Old Town Telluride|
On June 25, the Telluride Town Council members voted unanimously to put a November 2013 initiative on the ballot for a penny per ounce tax on sweetened beverages. Revenues from the tax will provide scholarships for kids to participate in extracurricular forms of physical activity and subsidize low-cost, after-school outdoors and gardening programs for kids.
