Cape Girardeau Fire Tax

NEWS

 

VOTE YES on November 4!

The following will be the last item on your November 4, 2014 ballot:

PROPOSITION - Shall the City of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, extend the imposition of the City’s existing fire sales tax of one-eighth of one percent (1/8 of 1%) beyond its current expiration date for the purpose of providing revenues for the operation of the Cape Girardeau Municipal Fire Department? This one-eighth of one percent (1/8 of 1%) sales tax extension shall expire on December 31, 2035. YES [ ] NO [ ]

All revenue generated by the Fire Sales Tax is used for the Fire Department. Some General Fund revenue otherwise designated for the Fire Department has been made available to fund needs in the Police Department via the Public Safety Trust Fund.

Keep the Tax the Same

Voting YES to renew the Fire Tax will not increase the current tax rate. The first Fire Tax approved by voters in 2004 was a one-quarter of one percent sales tax to fund fire and police department expenses. Half of that revenue source, which is one-eighth of one percent, is permanent and used for operating expenses. The other half will expire Dec. 31, 2014 and has been used for capital improvements associated with the fire and police departments.
