Newberry to hold transportation tax workshop

NEWBERRY – Newberry’s project list for the Alachua County transportation surtax will be discussed in a public workshop this Monday at 6 p.m. at Newberry City Hall.

The surtax is on the 2012 November election ballot.

Because Alachua County currently has a backlog in roadway maintenance needs, the county is suggesting that Alachua County municipalities agree to impose a transportation surtax, which is a sales tax, to provide additional funding for road projects.

The county has requested that cities that want to be a part of the surtax submit a prioritized project list of road projects that need to be done in the city.

The City of Newberry has not voted on whether or not to accept the inter-local agreement presented by the county.

If the tax were to pass, money would be distributed to the cities based on a formula taking into account population size and road mileage.
