1996 Community Investment Tax

According to the Hillsborough Count website:

“Over the past twelve years, the Community Investment Tax has generated $1.1 billion to fund a wide range of improvements that will greatly benefit our community. It is anticipated that the tax will generate approximately $4.7 billion over its thirty year life.  The funds are and will be used for capital improvement projects throughout Hillsborough County, including the City of Tampa, Plant City and Temple Terrace in the following areas: education, public safety, transportation, water, wastewater, reclaimed water, community stadiums, parks, libraries, museums, and government facilities.”

We are still paying for this last half-penny sales tax increase for transportation; what have we gotten for it and what will the proposed full-penny increase do for us that the last increase won’t?

Do you trust The County with yet more of YOUR money?
