The Pima County Sales Tax Advisory Committee has scheduled seven public meetings around the county in December and January to the give the public a chance to provide feedback on whether the board of supervisors should adopt a countywide sales tax. State law allows county boards of supervisors to enact up to a half-cent-per-dollar sales tax via a unanimous board vote. Locally, the meeting will be on the 7th of December from 6 PM to 7 PM at the Cienega High School Student Union, 12775 E. MaryAnn Cleveland Way.
The board of supervisors created the committee to answer three questions:
- Should the board adopt a half-cent sales tax for the purposes of accelerating road repair throughout the county, including within cities and towns?
- Should the board use any portion of the revenues from a sales tax to reduce county primary property taxes?
- Should the sales tax be permanent or temporary?
