On Monday, February 25, the Minnesota House Property and Local Tax Division received testimony on Elk River’s Local Option Sales Tax to fund recreational and outdoor amenity improvements as part of the Active Elk River plan. Rep. Zerwas introduced the bill to the committee and Councilmember Jennifer Wagner and City Administrator Cal Portner provided background information on the project and election. The bill was approved and laid over for inclusion in a larger tax bill. A similar hearing will be conducted by the Senate Taxes Committee in the near future.
