Special Purpose Districts – Crime Control and Prevention District and Fire Control, Prevention, and Emergency Medical Services District

In October 2017, the Town Council appointed seven members to serve on a Special Purpose District committee to review options available for a possible reallocation of the Town’s local sales tax.  The committee studied options available for the creation of special purpose districts that could utilize a portion of the Town’s local sales tax revenue.

Upon completion of the meetings, the committee made a recommendation to the Town Council to reallocate the Town’s sales tax and to create two Special Purpose Districts:  a Crime Control and Prevention District, and a Fire Control, Prevention, and Emergency Medical Services District.

A reallocation of the Town’s sales tax would require voter approval in an election to be held in May 2018 to consider the creation of the Special Purpose Districts.
