Ellensburg, WA

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: 62.6%-37.4%

Ellensburg City Council voted to establish a transit district, which in turn has the power to levy a sales tax to fund Central Transit.  Any new tax increase would require voter approval.  The city council has approved a measure to increase the sales tax by 0.2 percent for ten years to support the Ellensburg Transportation Benefit District, which oversees Central Transit.  If passed, revenue from this tax would effectively eliminate the need for any Washington State DoT funds to keep public transit in the city running.
