If approved, how will I see the proposed sales tax at work in the community?

If approved, the City would start to collect the new sales tax at the beginning of 2025. The city would look at immediately increasing our annual street maintenance budget to allow for further maintenance needs to be met. Implementation of early projects from the Parks Master Plan would begin implementation (this includes things such as High Park Phase I design, Decarsky Park Phase II, and improvements to neighborhood parks like Woodlawn and Crane Park). For public safety equipment and capital improvements, the City would be purchasing Police vehicles and Fire equipment starting in 2025 and would look to fund construction for additional office and training space at the Derby Police Department building.
