Don’t fret if you missed yesterday’s public meeting about how the ¼-cent special sales tax renewal vote affects you. We put together this 7-minute video to talk about the basics of this street and stormwater tax.
Merriam registered voters will consider renewing the special sales tax in January 2020 through a mail-in ballot. The City’s existing ¼-cent sales tax that exclusively funds street and stormwater projects across Merriam will expire Dec. 31, 2020. Voters first approved the special sales tax to pay for these capital improvement projects in 2000 and renewed the tax twice since.
Visit merriam.org/maintainingmerriam for more information, including projects eligible for funding if the sales tax is renewed. Mark your calendar - the City will hold a third public meeting on Jan. 9, 2020.
