Street Maintenance Sales Tax Election

{110397B7-F29E-4D25-92DF-2F8521B2183D}

Saginaw voters approved the Street Maintenance Sales Tax in May 2007 and reauthorized it in 2011 and 2015. 

The City of Saginaw Capital Improvement Program annually identifies streets for repair or reconstruction based on their condition.  The sales tax currently generates approximately $400,000 per year.  This allows the City to repair some of these streets each year on a “pay as you go” basis.

  • Individuals shopping in Saginaw now pay a total of 8.25% sales tax on certain retail sales.
  • The State collects 6.25%; the City collects 2.0%.
  • Of the City’s 2.0%, currently one (1) cent goes into the City’s General Fund, 1/8 cent goes to the Street Maintenance Fund, 3/8 cent is dedicated to the Crime Control and Prevention District, and 1/2 cent is dedicated to the reduction of property taxes.
