Discussion Regarding Potential for Half-Cent Sales Tax Referendum
There is no financial impact to the Board at this time.
At the January 23, 2018 Board meeting, following the completion of the Hernando County Space Utilization and Courthouse Needs Assessment Strategic Plan Update and Recommended Actions, Commissioner Wayne Dukes requested the Board's consensus to discuss at the next Board meeting the potential for a half-cent sales tax referendum on the November 6, 2018 ballot. The potential half-cent sales tax would become effective upon an affirmative vote by referendum of a majority of the county’s voters. The revenues raised from the tax may be used to address a wide variety of infrastructure needs.
