Marysville voters to consider renewing Transportation Benefit District

Voters in Marysville will decide in February whether to continue paying a 0.2% sales and use tax for transportation improvements. The Marysville City Council recently approved a resolution placing the matter on the Feb. 13, 2024, Special Election ballot.  

The Transportation Benefit District (TBD) was formed by the City Council in 2014 to provide funds used to preserve, maintain and expand the City’s transportation infrastructure. Marysville voters then approved the 0.2% sales and use tax increase for a 10-year period ending in 2024. The February ballot measure proposes the renewal and continuation of that tax for another 10 years. 

TBD funds are used primarily for street preservation that extends the life cycle of roadway sections through pavement repair, overlay, crack sealing and patching. Other projects included in the city’s Transportation Improvement Plan, such as sidewalk and shoulder improvements, also are eligible for TBD funding. State law requires that these funds be used only for eligible transportation improvement projects. 

Everyone who shops in Marysville pays city sales taxes, not just Marysville residents.  The 0.2% TBD sales tax rate on a $50 purchase equals 10 cents. If approved, the renewed TBD tax is estimated to generate an average of $3 million per year. 

“Over the past 10 years, the Transportation Benefit District has demonstrated the value of consistent city street preservation work,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “Regular routine maintenance is far less costly than having to rebuild roadways that fail due to lack of attention over time.”
