Ice arena sales tax passes [UPDATED]Published 11:25am Wednesday, July 20, 2011 Updated 11:54am Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Fergus Falls’ half-cent ice arena sales tax was in the omnibus tax bill passed by the state Legislature during its Tuesday and Wednesday special session.
No more than $6.6 million to pay for the arena can be raised from the tax.
The tax is legally required to stop as soon as it is determined that that amount has been raised.
Any tax money collected in between the time that the maximum amount for the arena is raised and the time the tax ends can be placed in the general fund.
The tax is expected to last about four and a half years.Tags: ice arena, State Capitol
