Sales Tax Approved by Springfield City Council

Springfield City Council has approved a new sales tax for the area where developers will build a new Buc-ee’s convenience store in Springfield.

The Cottle Range District is a little over 36 acres off I-44 on Mulroy Road. The five-eighths cent community improvement district sales tax pays for roadway improvements and running electric and utility lines.

The sales tax goes for 20 years or until the reimbursable cost is covered. More than nine million dollars in public improvements are needed for the project, which includes a 53-thousand square foot travel center with 100 gas pumps.
