At the February 12, 2020 meeting, the Firestone Board of Trustees approved Resolution 20-20 to place a ballot question on the April 7, 2020 municipal election ballot for consideration by Firestone voters. This question is asking voters to authorize the use of the 0.6% sales tax approved in 2017 for maintenance and operation of the police and municipal court facility and to construct, maintain, and operate new town facilities without increasing the current total sales and use tax rate of 3.6%
Ballot Question 2A reads in full as:
WITHOUT INCREASING THE CURRENT TOTAL SALES AND USE TAX RATE OF 3.6%, SHALL THE TOWN OF FIRESTONE BE AUTHORIZED TO EXPAND THE PURPOSES FOR WHICH THE .6% SALES AND USE TAX (APPROVED IN 2017) CAN BE USED TO INCLUDE:
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE POLICE AND MUNICIPAL COURT FACILITY;
CONSTRUCTION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF OTHER TOWN FACILITIES,
AND PROVIDED FURTHER THAT THE EXISTING LIMITATIONS IMPOSED BY THE 2017 BALLOT QUESTION, INCLUDING FOR A PERIOD NOT TO EXCEED TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, SHALL REMAIN IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT?
