Capital Improvement Sales Tax

Capital Improvement Sales Tax - April 4, 2017

Voter Information 

Ballot Question
"Shall the City of Maryville, Missouri be authorized to extend its capital improvement sales tax of one half of one percent until September 30, 2038, unless further extended by a vote of the people?"

In 2008, Maryville voters approved a one-half (1/2) of one percent (1%) sales tax for capital improvements under the provisions of Sections 144.010 to 144.525 of the Revised Missouri Statutes. The sales tax generates approximately $920,000 annually and represents the bulk of available revenue for citywide infrastructure projects and equipment replacements. The capital improvement sales tax is scheduled to sunset September 30, 2018 unless renewed by a vote of the people. 

The capital improvement sales tax provides funding exclusively for the City's Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) which includes ongoing infrastructure needs and replacement of service equipment. Since 2008, the sales tax has contributed to a wide variety of projects, including:

  • South Main Street Reconstruction (1st to Halsey)
  • Munn Avenue Reconstruction (South Ave to Highway V)
  • 16th Street Improvements (College to Country Club)
  • 4th Street Improvements (Main to Dunn)
  • Depot Street Reconstruction (1st to Halsey)
  • Aspahlt Mill & Overlay ($3 million in various locations)
  • St. Gregory's Trail
  • Eugene Field Trail
  • Hospital to Middle School Trail
  • 7th & 9th Street Trail
  • South Munn Street Trail
  • Spoofhound Trail Extention
  • Commuity Storm Siren Replacements
  • Fire Engine Replacement
  • Brush Truck/Quick Fire Response Vehicle 
  • Street Sweeper Refurbishment
  • Dump Truck w/ Snow Plow Replacements
  • Peach Creek Drainage Improvemens 
On April 4th, Maryville voters will be asked if they desire to renew the existing 1/2 cent sales tax to continue capital improvements throughout the community. If approved, the Governing Body will focus on three adopted City Council goals with the following projects:
  • Asphalt Mill & Overlay - Provides for a $2 million asphalt mill & overlay project to improve over eleven (11) miles of street conditions.
  • Public Safety Facility - Replaces the 1970's era grocery store for adequate space for today's law enforcement and firefighting needs.
  • South Main Street Improvements, Phase I - Reconstruction of South Main Street to improve functional design and aesthetics. 
A twenty (20) year renewal is proposed to allow financing of large projects over the term while increasing the available resources needed for year-to-year community needs.
