Three-Year One-Fifth Cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax experiences less of shortfall than expected

County Auditor June Pitchford reviewed the 3-year one-fifth cent capital improvement sales tax ballot in a meeting with the county on Oct. 5. The projected sales tax shortfall is $620,000, which is an improvement from when shortfall was projected to be up to one million.

The two pending items on the ballot are Phase II of the Alternative Sentencing Center remodel and the re-painting and re-carpeting of the second floor of the Johnson Building. The ballot proposed $500,000 for the Johnson Building; however, only $30,000 is expected to be used because there are just “cosmetic improvements left,”  Pitchford said. This reduction helps soften the blow of the tax shortfall.
