Learn More About Penny for Pinellas - White Board Series

On November 7, St. Petersburg and Pinellas County registered voters will consider extending the one percent Penny for Pinellas tax from 2020 to 2030. If approved, a portion of the funds would support St. Petersburg's investment in long-term infrastructure improvements, such as replacing or lining pipes in our wastewater system, new police and fire vehicles, parks, playgrounds and green spaces, city facilities and other general infrastructure projects, without using property taxes. Learn how the Penny is building a better St. Petersburg in our latest White Board video, view past Penny accomplishments with our interactive GIS map tool or request a speaker for your group or organization.
