Informational Meeting about half-cent sales tax ballot initiative

Monday, April 16, 2018

Douglas County is hosting an informational meeting about the half-cent sales tax referendum. The Douglas County Clerk’s Office will send out mail-in ballots for the referendum on April 25. County voters will be asked to approve a half-cent sales tax, which will generate an estimated $9.8 million annually to fund construction of the $44 million jail expansion and an $11 million behavioral health campus. The tax will also provide $5.1 million a year for new behavioral health programming and $1 million of the $6.1 million needed per year to operate an expanded jail. The ballots will be counted May 15.
