1/2-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax

In May 2008, voters renewed the 1/2–cent CIP tax for an additional five years (the sales tax is estimated to generate $13,900,000).  City Council has taken a list of possible projects and divided them into 'Priority Projects' accounting for 75% of the estimated sales tax revenues.  'Other Projects' are those, which may be completed with the balance of the sales tax revenues depending on the accuracy of revenue estimates and whether priority projects come in at or under budget.  This category may also include projects, which are on hold for final determination and projects, which may end up being funded form another source, like a grant.

½-Cent CIP 'Priority Projects' (in no particular order)
At the beginning of each fiscal year the Finance Director estimates the 1/2-cent CIP revenues for the year.  Staff then recommends one or more projects from the Priority Project list, which fit the revenue estimate.  Council then approves the annual 1/2-cent CIP budget.
