That Boulder City Council not dismantle the citizen supported sugar sweetened beverage tax

This petition made change with 108 supporters!


The current method of adding exemptions to the sugary drink tax in an ad hoc manner weakens the ordinance and opens the city up to legal attack by the American Beverage Association.  We recommend that the city follow city staff recommendations and not grant any exemptions before implementation and instead develop a transparent process to apply for and grant exemptions with input from legal and health experts as well as city staff who are working on the ordinance.  We recommend the city begin a comprehensive communication campaign to educate restaurants and retailers about the upcoming tax.  The sugary drink tax will reduce consumption of sugary beverages in Boulder and the money raised will increase health equity and improve the access to healthy opportunities for all Boulder citizens.  To email Council personally about this issue please use council@bouldercolorado.gov.
