On May 20, 2014, a County-wide referendum special election was conducted by the Supervisor of Elections which provided the voters of Seminole County with the opportunity to decide if the proposed one cent infrastructure tax should be approved. This tax will be effective for 10 years, beginning January 1, 2015. The infrastructure tax revenue will fund several projects for the County, several municipalities in the county, and the School Board of Seminole County.
