6th Penny - Specific Purpose Tax


Carbon County and each of its 10 municipalities recently adopted a joint resolution establishing how a proposed 1% Specific Purpose Tax would be used.  This tax is commonly referred to as the "6th Penny Tax" and must be used for the specific purpose stated on the ballot.  Funds cannot be used for general government operations, only capital projects. 

The 1% tax would fund infrastructure improvements countywide, including upgrades to roadways, sewer mains, water storage systems, wastewater treatment plants and other critical infrastructure. Other important capital improvements would also be addressed by the 6th penny tax, including renovating and repurposing the Carbon County Courthouse and Carbon Building.


Carbon County's project would consolidate criminal justice functions into the Courthouse essentially creating a justice center and consolidate county administrative functions into the Carbon Building.  For more information on the critical deficiencies, goals and office locations please view the presentation below.
Also below is a one page summary of the county's project.
