Sales Tax for Transportation

On December 15, 2015 that Crow Wing County Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution 2015-68 (PDF) implementing a special ½ cent county-wide sales tax to fund transportation. This resolution also stipulates a $1.2 million Road and Bridge property tax reduction beginning in 2017.

Revenue generated from the sales tax is dedicated to fund transportation related projects identified in the Sales Tax Implementation Plan (PDF). Resolution 2015-68 limits the collection of the sales tax to ten years or until revenues generated are sufficient to finance all identified projects; whichever occurs first.
