Washington County, UT

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Loss

Results: Fail, 52% - 48%

Washington County leaders have asked cities to let them know if they support placing a 0.25% sales tax on the November ballot.  Revenue gained from the sales tax would go toward projects like walking and biking trails, road improvements and public transit service expansion.  An additional $1.6 million could go to SunTran bus service if the measure were passed by voters.  The Commission votes on placing the measure on the ballot on August 16th.
