Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Approved, 55%-45%

Voters will be asked in November to raise the sales tax by 0.2 percent for transportation projects. The City Council has voted to create a citywide transportation benefit district. Then, acting as the district board, the council will consider asking voters for the sales tax increase that would be in effect for 10 years. The City Council still needs to vote one last time to create the district. It'll consider doing that on July 12.
