City council irons out more details on sales tax

A public vote on a potential Windom sales tax remains far into the future, but the planning process began to take shape at Tuesday's Windom city council meeting.

The council unanimously approved the wording of the resolution that will go to the Minnesota legislature during this session. Essentially, it calls for a sales tax that would be "up to" 1%. The tax would end after 15 years, or after $4 million is raised, whichever comes first.

However, those numbers could be adjusted between now and Windom's public vote, which could occur as late as the fall of 2014.

The council also began the process of setting up a nine-member board to consider the potential of building a new ice arena. It is not a certainty that the sales tax would be used to build an arena. The council will also consider a new fire hall, building a revolving loan fund for the Economic Development Authority, and creating a city equipment fund.
