The St. Petersburg Downtown Neighborhood Association board of directors has unanimously voted to support the referendum item and is urging its members to do so, too.

ST. PETERSBURG – The renewal of the Penny for Pinellas 1 percent sales tax is on the Nov. 7 ballot.

The St. Petersburg Downtown Neighborhood Association board of directors has unanimously voted to support the referendum item and is urging its members to do so, too.  The Penny for Pinellas was discussed at the last General Meeting and was widely supported, the group said.

This is not a new tax, and one-third is paid for by visitors and tourists, and is not collected on groceries or medications. The Penny has been in effect since 1990 and has funded many long-term capital investments: roads, bridges, water quality projects, public safety facilities and parks and environmental lands.

The Penny for Pinellas is voted on countywide.
