Event Description

Join City of Rochester staff and the League of Women Voters to learn more about the city sales tax extension that will be on the ballot this November. The City of Rochester is pursuing a renewal of the existing .5% sales tax. A Local Option Sales Tax has been in place since the 1980s, and it was most recently renewed in 2012. The City is requesting the following four projects be funded with sales tax revenue: Economic Vitality Fund, Street Reconstruction, Flood Control and Water Quality, and Regional Sports and Recreation Complex.

There will be time for questions from the audience. Use this link to submit a question ahead of time. Please join us! To view the livestream or view the recording afterwards, go to the Library's YouTube channel.
