Sales Tax Referendum
City of Maryville citizens will have the opportunity to participate in a referendum on a proposed increase to the current sales tax rate from 9.25% to 9.75%. This 0.5% increase would generate an estimated 2.5 million dollars. Maryville city schools would receive half ($1,250,000) and the City’s general fund would receive the remaining half. The impact on a sale of $10.00 would be 5 cents.
The decision to ask citizens for a vote at this time is based largely on the fact that several significant general fund revenues have not returned to pre-recession levels and that capital maintenance and equipment replacement has been deferred. This has caused a backlog of repair and replacement needs as well as outdated or obsolete security and technology features.
The money would be used to address infrastructures and facilities (schools, parking decks, pools, parks) that are in need of extensive repair and maintenance, the aging fleet of service vehicles and technology upgrades and security improvements to meet the new challenges we are facing as a society.
Currently, Maryville’s sales tax is 9.25%. Alcoa’s is 9.75% and Blount County is 9.25%
Early voting will begin on November 20 and ends December 5.
Election day will be held December 10.
