The Bismarck-Mandan Chamber will host a town hall discussion on Infrastructure funding on Thursday, February 11 in the Bavendick Stateroom at the BSC National Energy Center of Excellence (NECE) Building. The meeting will begin at 5:30pm and is scheduled to conclude by 7:00pm.
"The Chamber Board has not taken a position on the proposed one-cent sales tax increase," said Kelvin Hullet, former President of the Chamber. "However, infrastructure is a key to every successful community and we should have a public discussion on the issue."
In late 2015, Mayor Mike Seminary brought forward the idea of a one-cent sales tax increase to fund street and road construction. This is one of four options identified in the Growth Management Plan developed by the city. The other mechanisms identified in the plan are: an increase in property taxes; a utility fee or additional impact fees on development.
The town hall is open to Chamber members and the public. It will include a presentation on the issue and then a discussion of the various alternatives.
