Dayton OKs resolution for one-cent tax
Date posted: July 18, 2014
DAYTON — The Optional One-Cent Sales Tax will go before voters this November for a decision on whether to continue the tax for another four years.
If the tax is passed, Dayton Town Council has determined it will continue its one-cent funding as it has in the past, Mayor Bob Wood said.
The council passed a resolution at its meeting Wednesday that prioritized funding recipients if voters approve the tax.
If the tax is approved, it will be alloted beginning July 1, 2015, and continue through June, 30, 2019.
After considering requests for funding, councilors determined that one-cent funds alloted to the town would be used to support maintenance of the outside of the Tongue River Valley Community Center in Dayton, a variety of social service organizations, parks and recreation, equipment purchases for the town and for the fire and rescue department and general town beautification.
Approval of the resolution was the only item on the council’s agenda.
