Gas tax sunsets

The City of Pendleton’s local $0.04 per gallon gas tax sunset on March 11, 2013. The purpose of the voter approved gas tax was to fund the debt service for the Airport Connector Road Project completed in late-2010. On March 7, 2013, letters were hand-delivered to gas station managers and mailed to gas station owners. Final payment from gas stations were due on or before March 25, 2013. No additional payments have been collected by the City of Pendleton since.
