2015 Sales Tax Vote
Progress Update
The Sales Tax question on April 7, 2015 passed (57% yes; 43% no).With that passage, a 0.75 % sales tax was added to the city's sales tax rate October 1, 2015. It will last not more than 5 years. The proceeds will go towards constructing a new street shop, new restrooms in Central Park, and purchasing a new ladder truck. Check here for updates as progress on these community improvements are made.

The walls have gone up at the new street shop!

The new 12,505 square foot Street shop will include four work bays and an indoor wash bay. Office space, gender-specific locker rooms, a break/meeting room and ample storage area will complete the building. The architects on the project are GLMV and the contractor is Bauer & Son Construction.

Construction on the project is moving right along and the building should be finished by Fall. Thank you residents for a great new facility!

Central Park Restrooms
new central park restrooms
Opened in July 2016!
Although the picture with barricades may cause you to think they are still under construction, the restrooms in Central Park were completed in July 2016! The barricades will stick around a bit longer while some work on the doors is completed but the restrooms are open for public use! Thank you Andover for voting to add another GREAT amenity to YOUR Central Park!

We Heard You
Andover City Council and staff members are devoted to ensuring a bright future for our community.  In reviewing the 2015 capital improvement budget, the Council decided the time had come to  ask the citizenry for a sales tax increase. A question for a 1 cent sales tax was on the November 2014 ballot and was defeated by 221 votes. 

Some of the feedback received by Council members and staff included a disapproval for a sales tax without a sunset date. Additionally some did not care for a sales tax for future, unknown capital improvement projects. Taking that feedback into consideration, the City Council went back to the drawing board and came to a consensus on the three most important needs of the community. Those items are a fire department ladder truck, restrooms for Central Park and a Street Maintenance Shop. To fund these important projects, the City Council is putting a 3/4 of a cent sales tax question  on the 4/7/15 ballot for Andover residents. This sales tax will sunset in five years or when enough revenue is collected for the three projects, whichever comes first.
