May 16, 2017 Election


Motor Vehicle Fuel Tax


At the May 16, 2017 election, there will be a measure for establishing a $0.03 motor vehicle fuel tax within the city of Stayton. 


In Stayton, 9 miles of streets need reconstruction and 12 miles of streets need pavement overlays. The total cost of improving and maintaining the City's streets is estimated at $23.5 million. A tax on motor vehicle fuels in the City of Stayton would generate funds dedicated to the repair and upgrade City-maintained streets. Presently, Stayton's Street Fund is comprised of revenues from transportation maintenance fees shared state gas revenues and the Surface Transportation Program. The $0.03 per gallon motor vehicle fuel tax is estimated to raise approximately $165,000 per year and will contribute to the revenue necessary to properly maintain and improve City-maintained streets.


The City will be holding multiple Town Hall meetings to share the presentation and answer questions from community members. These meetings will be held at the Stayton Public Library in the E.G. Siegmund Meeting Room on these dates:


  • Tuesday, April 18th at 6:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 19th at 1:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 22nd at 10:00 a.m.


Below you will find a video of the presentation given to City Council at their February 6, 2017 meeting. In addition a downloadable version of the PowerPoint presentation is included below and a copy of the City's Street Ratings spreadsheet. 


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact City Hall at (503) 769-3425.
