Half Cent Sales Tax
In November 1995, voters elected to adopt the One-Half Cent Sales and Use Tax within the City of Tyler in order to fund public improvements including public safety, streets, traffic control, airport, utilities, parks and drainage for the promotion and development of new and expanded business enterprise as set out in Texas law article 5190.6 section 4B.

Today, the Engineering Department manages nearly 13 million dollars in capital projects each year. The Half Cent Sales Tax Corporation and the Tyler City Council approve an Annual Work Plan as stipulated by the Corporation's bylaws. The Annual Work Plan consists of a 10 year Capital Improvement Program that includes identification, prioritization, management and implementation of Capital Improvement Projects.


Project Ranking System
Because the City's goals and resources are constantly changing, the Half Cent Annual Work Plan is designed to be re-evaluated every year to reaffirm or reprioritize the capital improvement projects. Click on the document to download a summary of the prioritization and ranking process.
