Here is a list of staff recommendations for the local option sales tax extension. Staff arrived at this list after working with council members.I suspect that every council member would find this a far from perfect list, but it appears to be a good compromise. I see some noticeable improvements on this list. I was particularly heartened that the city council saw value in our library which is the most used library building in the state.
The next steps will require city council approval, state legislature approval, and voter approval. All of our previous sales tax referendums have passed with overwhelming support because the public has seen value in the funded projects. I think the public will also see the benefit of these projects.
