Nothing! The City Council is not proposing an increase to the current sales tax. The ballot language is asking voters to allow the current 8.25% sales tax to stay in effect.
The ¼ of a percent is the portion of the existing sales tax rate, which was voted into approval in 1999. This continued revenue allows the City of Midland to renovate, expand, and improve our existing parks, roads, public arts, and sports complexes.
