What does the City’s Municipal Service Tax pay for and how much revenue does it bring in?

Funds from the Municipal Service Tax (MST) support the maintenance, repair, and improvement of streets and roads, as well as fire suppression activities, including vegetation removal. It is a “restricted fund” and may only be used for these purposes. It brings in about $1.8 million per year, and is set to expire at the end of June 2027. Learn more about the MST here.
