  • Impose a 1 % tax on businesses with gross receipts in excess of $2 million
  • Impose a 1.4% tax on commercial real estate leasing with gross receipts in excess of $2 million
  • Impose a .5 % Sales Tax Increase for Emergency Health and Human Services and Public Protection
  • Increase the city's 8.5% sales tax to 9% for three years.
