This proposition reauthorizes a one-quarter percent sales tax that was passed by the voters in 2009 and reauthorized in 2013.
In a nutshell, if you were to buy a $4.00 drink at the Houston Yacht Club, you pay $4.01.
The taxes collected under this ordinance are legally bound to be used for street maintenance and cannot be used for anything else. The tax revenue from this tax averages $18,000 per year.
I support this reauthorization and will be voting for it.
