relating to taxation; authorizing the city of Moose Lake to impose a local sales
and use tax.



Subdivision 1.

Sales and use tax authorization.

Notwithstanding Minnesota Statutes,
section 297A.99, subdivision 1, or 477A.016, or any other law, ordinance, or city charter,
as approved by the voters at the November 6, 2012, general election, the city of Moose Lake
may impose, by ordinance, a sales and use tax of up to one-half of one percent for the
purposes specified in subdivision 2. Except as otherwise provided in this section, the
provisions of Minnesota Statutes, section 297A.99, govern the imposition, administration,
collection, and enforcement of the tax authorized under this subdivision.

Subd. 2.

Use of sales and use tax revenues.

The revenues derived from the tax authorized
under subdivision 1 must be used by the city of Moose Lake to pay the costs of collecting
and administering the tax and to finance the costs of: (1) improvements to the city's park
system; (2) street and related infrastructure improvements; and (3) municipal arena
improvements. Authorized costs include construction and engineering costs and associated
bond costs.

Subd. 3.

Bonding authority.

The city of Moose Lake may issue bonds under Minnesota
Statutes, chapter 475, to finance all or a portion of the costs of the facilities authorized in
subdivision 2. The aggregate principal amount of bonds issued under this subdivision may
not exceed $3,000,000, plus an amount to be applied to the payment of the costs of issuing
the bonds. The bonds may be paid from or secured by any funds available to the city of
Moose Lake, including the tax authorized under subdivision 1. The issuance of bonds under
this subdivision is not subject to Minnesota Statutes, sections 275.60 and 275.61.

The bonds are not included in computing any debt limitation applicable to the city of

and interest on the bonds is not subject to any levy limitation. A separate election to approve
the bonds under Minnesota Statutes, section 475.58, is not required.

The tax imposed under subdivision 1 expires at the
earlier of: (1) 20 years after the tax is first imposed; or (2) when the city council determines
that $3,000,000 has been received from the tax to pay for the cost of the projects authorized
under subdivision 2, plus an amount sufficient to pay the costs related to issuance of the
bonds authorized under subdivision 3, including interest on the bonds. Any funds remaining
after payment of all such costs and retirement or redemption of the bonds shall be placed
in the general fund of the city. The tax imposed under subdivision 1 may expire at an earlier
time if the city so determines by ordinance.
