Flood Protection Sales Tax | VideoJulie Leonardi | 2/27/2013
The current one cent sales tax is set to expire. In 2012, it raised $13.4 million.
City of Minot Finance Director, Cindy Hemphill, is for the proposed tax. “I think that we really need to show the people of North Dakota, including our state legislature and the citizens of Minot, that the city is dedicated to providing protection to the citizens and that we don`t want to have anyone experience what happened here in 2011. We are determined to make this work.”
The sales tax proposal will be voted on Monday at the city council meeting.
