Proposition No. 1

Transportation Benefit District Sales and Use Tax for Roadway Maintenance, Preservation, Restoration and Improvements

The City Council approved Resolution No. 19-09 authorizing a transportation benefit district sales and use tax of 0.2% for a ten year term within the City, pursuant to RCW 82.14.0455, to fund transportation operations and maintenance related projects including pedestrian safety enhancements, crack sealing, pavement overlays and roadway reconstruction of its existing roadway infrastructure and pledging funds as necessary to further leverage public funds for City transportation projects and programs.

Should this proposition be:

Approved

Rejected


Proposition 1 represents an effort by the City of Duvall to fund transportation operations and maintenance projects identified in the City’s Overlay and 6-year Transportation Improvement Program.  Among other unmet transportation needs identified by the Duvall City Council, the sales tax revenue will be used to pay the costs of pedestrian safety enhancements, crack sealing, pavement overlays, reconstruction of existing roadway infrastructure, and/or to further leverage public funds for use on City projects and programs.  

A vote to approve Proposition 1 will authorize imposition of an additional retail sales and use tax within the City of 0.2%, which translates into an additional $0.20 for every $100.00 spent on taxable purchases in the City.  This tax is paid by everyone, residents and non-residents alike, who make taxable purchases within the City.  Use of the revenue generated by the City from the sales and use tax is restricted under state law, meaning these sales tax revenues may only be used to finance costs related to maintaining and improving the City’s transportation system and implementing the City’s transportation improvement program as approved by the Duvall City Council.  If approved by the voters, the 0.2% sales tax authorized in Proposition 1 will be imposed for a period of 10 years beginning not earlier than April 1, 2020.
