What happens if the street maintenance sales and use tax is not reauthorized?

If the reauthorization of the street maintenance sales and use tax is disapproved, the city may not be able to maintain or repair municipal streets and sidewalks in the same manner as it has in the past because this funding source would no longer be available.   To raise the same amount of revenues that the city has collected over the past four years ($2.1M) from property taxes instead of these sales and use taxes, a homeowner, whose net taxable property value (after applicable exemptions) is $300,000, will have to pay approximately $126 more in property taxes annually.
