On November 7, 2017, voters in the City of Silverton approved a local tax on motor vehicle fuel. Ordinance 17-09 was passed by City Council on June 7, 2017 to add Chapter 3.10 to the City’s Municipal Code outlining the administration of a motor vehicle fuel tax. The net revenues generated by the tax will be used only for planning, financing, design, construction, maintenance, repair, and operation of public highways, roads, and streets in the City.
Projects that may be funded by the tax include:
McClaine Street Reconstruction Project
Overlay of downtown City owned streets
Slurry sealing or overlay of neighborhood streets
The tax applies to all fuel sold, used, or distributed within the City of Silverton’s city limits. The City will be directly administering the program and any questions should be directed to the Finance Department.
