SALES TAX FUNDS VITAL SERVICES

Have you ever thought the fact that the city doesn’t send you a bill for a service call when police or fire personnel, equipment and vehicles respond to your call in an emergency?

Or that you don’t pay admission to a city park, even though the parks must be mowed and maintained?

Sales tax makes up the majority (about 77%) of the City of Shawnee’s General Fund, which pays for vital city services such as:

  • Police
  • Fire
  • Emergency Management
  • Parks Maintenance
  • Streets Maintenance
