Sales Tax for Transportation

On Sept. 4, The Sherburne County Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution 090418-AD-1857 implementing a special half-cent, county-wide sales tax to fund transportation. This will generate an estimated $3.2 million with 30 percent of the total is expected to be coming from non-Sherburne County residents.  The County Board has indicated that roughly $1.4 million will be applied to the Northstar and Link operations and maintenance, while the remaining portion will be allocated to the high-priority projects listed in exhibit A

Resolution 090418-AD-1857 limits the collection of the sales tax to 20 years or until revenues generated are sufficient to finance all identified projects; whichever occurs first.
