Background Discussion

The Citizens Financial Structure Board was created on October 20, 2015, to make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners regarding matters related to the best combination of available revenue sources to fund county services, programs, and capital projects.

After numerous meetings over a five-month period, the 13-member Advisory Board presented a recommendation for a voter referendum to implement a half-cent sales tax to solve the County’s looming budget issues and to make the budget process sustainable.

The Advisory Board sunsetted on May 1, 2016.
