SUPPLEMENTAL TAX OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE
Senate Bill 1: Supplemental Sales Tax Road Repair Update
We are nearing the completion of the original 5-year plan for the Supplemental Sales Tax road repair projects and are identifying projects for the next phase of funding. Field work and analysis for the update to our Pavement Condition Index was just completed to evaluate every section of pavement in the city, rate the condition, and identify the proper repair method. A complete update is listed here (PDF).
In addition to the 1/2-cent Supplemental Sales Tax funds primarily used for street repair, the State Legislature recently passed Senate Bill 1, which would provide additional funding to the City for road repairs, as well as some additional grant opportunities. The City Council will receive a short briefing on this new funding source on May 2, 2017. Senate Bill 1 is expected to provide about $700,000 per year for City street repairs.
Revenue and Expenditures
In 2012, Citizens authorized a 1/2 cent sales tax increase and requested it be used for road maintenance. To ensure public trust, the City Council created an Oversight Committee to verify funds were used as requested.
