The Penny for Pinellas is a sales tax (one cent on every dollar) that has been in effect since 1990. The money is shared between Pinellas County and the 24 cities to fund long-term, capital investments such as improved roads, bridges and trails, water quality and flood prevention, public safety equipment and vehicles, fire stations, parks and environmental land acquisition, and land for housing that is accessible to citizens at all income levels.
The Penny must be renewed every 10 years. It comes up for renewal this November. If passed, the Penny will be in effect through 2030.
