Sales Tax Measure on November Ballot

Aug 29, 2016 10:29AM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

The special tax proposed in the ordinance would be a one-half percent (0.50%) transactions and use tax, beginning April 1, 2017, on retail sales in the City of Martinez, with a 15-year sunset clause to March 31, 2032. The tax would be collected in the same manner as sales tax is currently collected. The ordinance will become effective if it is approved by two-thirds of voters.

 

It is estimated that a one-half percent (0.50%) special roads transactions and use tax would produce $2.1 million in revenues annually. This additional funding would allow the city to address critical paving projects in our residential roadway network and major thoroughfares such as Center Avenue, Pine Road, Glacier Drive, Howe Road, and Arnold Drive, along with preventative maintenance in newer residential developments such as the Brittany Hills, Parkside, and Shannon Hills. An ad hoc subcommittee comprised of Mayor Schroder and Councilmember DeLaney will create the argument in favor.
