A mail-in ballot election in June 2023 will determine whether the City of Overland Park can levy a three-eighth cent (0.375 percent) sales tax to fund public infrastructure improvements.
Revenue from the tax would be dedicated to improving City infrastructure. This includes primarily streets and traffic management systems, but can include related infrastructure such as curbs, gutters, sidewalks, streetlights, storm sewers and more. These programs were developed in response to Overland Park’s growing infrastructure maintenance, preservation and improvement needs.
Vote in the June 22, 2023, election via your mail-in ballot.
Registered voters can expect a ballot to be mailed to your home in late May or early June. You will be prompted to vote “yes” or “no” on the special question ballot.
To register to vote, visit the Johnson County Election Office website.
