Providing a safe and efficient transportation system is a priority for Scott County, but maintaining current roadways while also enhancing or expanding the system requires additional funds. The transportation sales tax will enable Scott County to capture revenue from the 10 million annual visitors to the various entertainment, restaurant, and shopping venues in Scott County.
This will be invested towards regional transportation services and infrastructure needed to support our residents and visitors as well as other economic development projects in the County. Residents of Scott County will be assured that the sales tax they pay will fund projects in Scott County.
In many instances, funds raised from the tax will help supplement other state and federal transportation funding sources as they become available, potentially expediting long-awaited projects and preventing the delay of other high priority County projects.
