APRIL 4, 2023, GENERAL MUNICIPAL ELECTION
On April 4, two propositions – Proposition P for public safety sales tax and Proposition U for a use tax – were on the ballot. By modernizing our revenue streams, we can provide improved amenities like expanded police presence and quality infrastructure.
The ordinance asks voters to consider imposing a local use tax on out-of-state purchases, at a rate equal to the rate of local sales tax in effect in Parkville, 2%. Funds generated would be dedicated to infrastructure and capital improvements throughout the city such as the next phase of improvements to Highway 9.
This ordinance asks voters to consider imposing a citywide ½ percent public safety sales tax to be placed on all retail sales made in the City of Parkville. Funds generated would be dedicated to the use of public-safety related purposes, including police equipment, competitive salaries and benefits and facilities.
To schedule a presentation by the City, contact Mayor Dean Katerndahl.
PROPOSITION U: USE TAX
PROPOSITION P: PUBLIC SAFETY SALES TAX
