The City of Springfield is seeking input on how the ¼-cent capital improvements sales tax revenue should be used if the tax is extended in April.
The tax was first approved in 1989 and has been renewed by voters nine times: In 1992, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016..
Public Works engineers have put together a list of 26 proposed roadway construction projects to be included in the next cycle of the ¼-cent sales tax program. The city wants anyone who lives works or visits Springfield to take an online survey at springfieldmo.gov/election. It asks citizens to prioritize the projects they think are most beneficial to the community, offer guidance on the amount that should be invested in certain city-wide programs and provide additional comments they might have.
Paper copies of the survey are available at the Citizen Resource Center in the lobby of the Busch Municipal Building.
