A half-cent sales tax in Fargo, North Dakota that brings in about 10 million dollars a year is set to expire in June. But “Fargo City Commissioners voted to move ahead with plans to put a half-cent sales tax extension to voters” in June. “The tax is used for infrastructure projects, like the replacement of old water mains, and also flood protection.” Though commissioners were hesitant to rush to extend the sales tax or to place it on the June ballot, all but one voted in favor of a new resolution being drafted.
The city now waits for the “…city attorney to draft the resolution and the city engineer to compile a report of needs those funds would go towards.”
