Local Option Sales Tax

Since 2010, the Linn County Secondary Road Department has received more than $36 million in local option sales tax revenue. These funds have accelerated Linn County’s 5-year construction program by paving 106 miles of roads (30% of the paved system), three bridge projects, and three culvert replacement projects. The majority (94 miles) of the paving projects were concrete overlays.
