Proposes the renewal of the City’s .50% street maintenance sales tax dedication. Sales tax is levied by the City on all goods sold within the city limits. The City has adopted a dedicated purpose sales tax that allocates .50% of the 2% sales tax collected for street maintenance. These dedicated funds will be spent to repair and maintain existing city streets. This dedicated revenue source for street maintenance will discontinue in December 2020 unless approved by the voters.
Proposition B - Broadband Project Bond
Proposes the issuance of a general obligation bond in the amount of $19,190,000 to create a City of Lucas fiber optic broadband utility system to deliver citywide broadband internet service. IF funding for the broadband project is approved by the voters, the project is proposed to operate on a individual subscription basis giving residents the option to choose this as their internet service.
