WINK: Collier County considers one-percent sales tax increase

Collier County told you the millions of dollars from a one-percent sales tax increase would help build your community.

But where exactly would that money go?

Voters in Collier County get to decide in November whether to collect the cash to fix roads like Airport-Pulling Road.

“I would rather see the sales tax increase by one percent than I would see property tax go up,” said Christine Glendack.

Glendack moved from Texas two years ago and she says she’ll be voting in favor of the sales tax increase in November.

“Tourists pay a lot more from where they come from, and they think six percent is really low, so one percent won’t make a whole lot of a difference,” she said.
