  • City of Haysville | 1% Tax

    1% Sales Tax Information Special Question, November 7, 2023 In a special question on November 7, 2023, Haysville voters will be asked to considering renewing the 1.00% city sales tax. This would generate approximately $1.3 million annually. The proposition to be voted on shall appear on the ballot as follows: Shall the following be adopted? Shall a retailers' sales tax in the amount of one percent (1.00%) be levied in the City of Haysville, Kansas, to take effect July I, 2024, or as soon thereafter as such tax may be levied by the Kansas Department of Revenue, with revenue from such tax used to fund a Local Street, Park & Recreation Improvement Program; and provided that such retailers' sales tax shall expire on the date ten years after it is first levied, all pursuant to K.S.A 12-187, et seq., as amended? Read the full ordinance #1106 here . The rationale behind the 1% sales tax is firmly rooted in our dedication to the progress of Haysville and well being of its residents. This sales tax renewal is designed to directly improve three critical areas: Streets, Parks and Recreation. Streets: Well-maintained streets are the lifelines of our community. By allocating funds to street maintenance and improvements, we ensure the safety and efficiency of our transportation networks. Pothole repairs, street resurfacing, and infrastructure upgrades are essential to creating smooth, reliable, and hazard-free travel experience for all residents and visitors. Through the 1% sales tax, we are taking a proactive approach to preserving the integrity of our roadways and ensuring safe journeys for generations to come. Parks and Recreation: Our parks and recreation facilities are the heart of community life, offering spaces for leisure, exercise, and social interactions. With the 1% sales tax, we will continue to invest in revitalizing and modernizing these spaces. Upgrades to playgrounds, sports fields, walking trails, and gathering areas contribute to a higher quality of life for individuals and families alike. By allocating funds to these enhancements, we create a healthier, more vibrant, and united community where residents can come together, stay active, and forge lasting memories. The 1% sales tax ensures that we have the necessary resources to maintain our streets, enhance our recreational offerings, and continue building a city that we are proud to call home. Proposed Solution 1% Sales Tax By continuing the 1% City Sales Tax, the City stands to yield an estimated $1,380,000 annually. This revenue would empower the city to achieve the following objectives: Continue street repairs on a consistent timetable, as opposed to a reactive approach. Continue enhancing public amenities, such as parks, recreation and other public spaces. This will contribute to a high quality of life for our residents. Unlike property taxes, the sales tax generates funds from visitors who make purchases within the city's boundaries. Q: Is this a tax increase? A: No, this is not a tax increase. The City currently has a 1% sales tax that began July 1, 2014 and ends June 30, 2024. This would be a 10 year continuation of the current sales tax ensuring continued funding for essential community improvements and services without introducing a new or increased tax rate. Q: Does Haysville currently have a local sales tax? What surrounding cities currently have a sales tax? A: Yes. The following surrounding communities have a city sales tax: Q: When is the election and who can vote? A: The election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 7, 2023, and will be accessible to all eligible registered voters residing within Haysville, KS city limits. Early voting at satellite sites can be done between November 2 and November 4, from 10 am to 4 pm. On election day, voters can submit their ballots at their usual precinct sites. The deadline for voter registration is October 17, 2023. ​ Q: How much will this tax generate annually? A: Annually, the 1% sales tax is estimated to yield around $1,380,000 in revenue. ​ Q: What is impacted by this 1%? A: The 1% sales tax directly impacts key aspects of our community's well-being and growth. It provides vital funding for essential areas such as: · Streets : The sales tax contributes to road maintenance, repairs, and improvements, ensuring safe and efficient travel for residents and visitors. · Parks and Recreation: Our parks and recreation facilities benefit from enhanced funding, allowing for upgrades, renovations, new HAC equipment, and the creation of new recreational spaces that enrich community life. ​ Q: How will the money be used? A: The 1% sales tax revenue will only be used to enhance our streets, parks, and recreation facilities. This allocation ensures safe travel and a high quality of life for our residents by maintaining infrastructure and creating engaging community spaces. ​ Q: If I have further questions, who can I contact? A: You can contact Will Black via email at wblack@haysville-ks.com or by phone at (316) 529-5900. Q: What is the current maintenance/replacement schedule for roads? A: The current maintenance and replacement schedule for roads in our community involves a meticulous process. Roads are inspected annually to assess their condition, and maintenance activities such as pothole repairs, and crack sealing. Since the beginning of the current City sales Tax $4,361,052.04 has been expended on street maintenance and replacement. ​ Q: What happens if we don’t do this? A: Failing to adhere to a consistent road maintenance and replacement schedule can have far reaching consequences for our community. Roads left unmaintained are prone to rapid deterioration, resulting in increased safety hazards, discomfort for commuters, and potential vehicle damage. Delayed maintenance often translates into higher costs as minor issues escalate. Q: How does Haysville's mill levy compare to other communities in Sedgwick County? A: Haysville’s mill levy is positioned on the lower end when compared to other cities in Sedgwick County. This reflects our commitment to maintaining a competitive tax rate while still providing essential services and investing in our community. Q: What impact does the 1% sales tax have on park and recreation specifically? A: The influence of the sales tax on our community’s recreation and parks system is significant, fostering its ongoing enhancement and growth. This revenue source plays a pivotal role in multiple aspects. Firstly, it has enabled us to breathe new life into our existing parks, playgrounds, sports facilities, and recreational spaces. Furthermore, it provides essential funding for the development of new amenities, exemplified by the creation of Randal Dorner Park, alongside several other notable improvements. ​ Q: How has the sales tax directly impacted our community by supporting important projects and facilities? A: The sales tax has played a significant role in one of our community’s most valuable assets-the Haysville Activity Center. This facility, made possible in part by the sales tax revenue, stands as a testament to our commitment to providing state-of-the-art recreational amenities. The Activity Center serves as a hub for fitness, wellness programs, and community gatherings, enhancing the quality of life for our residents.
