Shelby County Road Tax

Shelby County voters will decide on a road improvement plan at the polls on April 6th.

Proposition 1 would allow the county to collect 50 cents per acre of agricultural and horticultural land to generate funds for the road and bridge special rock fund.

Right now, landowners can order more rock from the county for roads in their area and pay for a portion of the cost out of their pocket.

Proposition 1 is expected to generate $145,000 for the fund and the tax level can be adjusted with the maximum set at 50 cents.

Proposition 1 also has a 5 year sunset clause.
