Why a sales tax renewal on the November 2020 ballot if it doesn't expire until 2023?
  • The November 3, 2020 election will likely generate high voter turnout due to national, state and local questions being on the ballot. This encourages broader participation in this community decision.
  • Including the sales tax renewal question on the scheduled 11/3/20 ballot affords the question to be voted on with the City not incurring any election expense.
  • The special purpose sales tax is a key source of funding to the City’s long term capital plan, for this reason along with the fact that all special purpose sales taxes sunset, a renewal question is to be expected.
