With 100% of precincts reporting, about 76% of Coppell voters were in favor of the sales tax reauthorization. That translates to 2,625 votes for and 834 votes against, according to Dallas and Denton County elections departments.
The sales tax revenue goes to the city's street and sidewalk repair fund. Voters originally approved the quarter-cent sales tax for street and sidewalk repair in 2007. That means Coppell shoppers will not pay any extra in sales taxes if the rate is reauthorized. A vote for the proposition would keep the sales tax in place, and a vote against would remove the tax.
The city projects it will collect about $6 million in sales tax revenue in fiscal year 2019-20 for its street and sidewalk maintenance repair fund, according to city data.
