The purpose of the MACH Board is to make recommendations to City Council on how to implement the MACH initiative, which increased the City's Use Tax Rate and Sales Tax Rate by 3/10ths of 1%. 66% of these funds will be allocated to a special fund for facility improvements and operations at the Carnegie Building, Manitou Art Center, Manitou Springs Heritage Center, Miramont Castle, and Hiawatha Gardens. The remaining 34% of the proceeds will be distributed by the City Council through awards and grants to foster the arts, culture, and heritage within Manitou Springs.
