Aggressive timeline pursued for Memorial Auditorium renovation WORTHINGTON — Following last Tuesday’s passage of the local option half-cent sales tax, the Worthington City Council on Monday discussed plans to put the two tax-funded projects — renovations to Memorial Auditorium and the building of a community center complex — into action.
Say yes to the proposed City of Worthington half-percent sales tax. The Minnesota Legislature several years ago passed legislation that allowed the City of Worthington to enact a time-restricted (non-permanent) half-percent add on to the existing sales tax.
Worthington voters will face two tax-related questions when they go to the polls Tuesday. While one involves an ill-conceived amendment to the Minnesota Constitution, the other will have a direct benefit to this community for years to come ... and Worthingtonians won’t even have to foot the entire bill.
I do not remember a time when the taxpayers (property owners) in the city limits of Worthington have had an opportunity to ask those who live out of town, visitors, and those who rent houses and apartments in town help pay for projects in the city of Worthington.
Half-cent sales tax would only fund center’s construction WORTHINGTON — Proponents say the proposed 18,125-square-foot community center complex would make Worthington the go-to place for meetings and events, bringing more revenue to those businesses already established. Others question the necessity of such a facility, saying current venues are adequate.
