Half-Cent Sales Tax campaign

MAN Hlf-Cent_logo_FINALLogo and advertising design to promote awareness and provide information for the Manatee County, FL Half-Cent Sales Surtax for Public Infrastructure request on the November, 2016 ballot. The county needed to create a new revenue stream to reduce the vast reliance on property taxes to fund projects and programs that benefit the public.


Voters said “yes” to this local tax referendum, which is expected to cost a typical household about $5 a month in county sales taxes, but raise a total of $30 million a year in revenue for improvements to county infrastructure.

Transportation infrastructure improvements, including upgrades to the current standards for travel lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and lighting; the replacement and expansion of aging public safety and law enforcement facilities and equipment; and upgrades to county parks and community amenities are now being scheduled.
