“A Penny At Work” for Sunrise and Broward
Celebrate the Arts in the City of Sunrise
This November, Broward County residents have the opportunity to vote on two ballot questions that involve Broward County and its municipalities, including the City of Sunrise.
One question is for a half a penny (.5%) transportation sales surtax for transportation projects, including traffic signal synchronization, expanded senior mobility, and enhanced transit options, which would be implemented by the County.
The second question is for half a penny infrastructure sales surtax to fund individual city projects. Here in Sunrise, we have proposed projects such as new bicycle lanes; bus shelters; drainage improvements; the construction of trails and multi-use paths along select roadways and corridors; traffic calming; new sidewalks, the replacement of damaged sidewalks, and improved ADA accessibility at intersections; and the resurfacing of public streets citywide.
Both ballot questions must pass for the one cent surtax to take effect. If either surtax does not receive majority voter approval, both will fail.
A website has been created to help inform voters about these two ballot questions. Learn more about the two sales surtax questions at www.APennyAtWork.com.
