“Whether the Southlake Crime Control and Prevention District should be continued for 20 years and the crime control and prevention district sales tax should be continued for 20 years.”

The 1/8th of a cent remaining for the CCPD would remain dedicated to continue the School Resource Officer program as well as other equipment needs for the Southlake Police Department.  Under state law all special sales tax districts and corporations require voter approval.   For more information about the special election and the proposed Type A  Economic Development Corporation please visit the City’s special election webpage.
