Task Force Recommends Revenue Options to Sustain Current City Services

On November 28, 2018, the City of Salem’s Sustainable Services Revenue Task Force recommended three possible new sources of revenue for City Council consideration. The Task Force recommendation included advice to consider phasing or timing one or more of the following revenue options: an operating fee, an employee-paid payroll tax, and a local gas tax. While a local gas tax is required to be submitted to voters, the Task Force also recommended the two other options be referred. A full report of the Task Force’s recommendation will be presented to the City Council in January 2019.
