Officials with the City of Sisters have realized the wisdom of the passage of the gas tax last March. They projected that they would collect about $126,000 from the 3¢ a gallon gas tax. In just a few months, they have already collected about $63,000. City residents approved the tax to help pay for street maintenance. But there is a lawsuit from some opposed to the tax, pending so the City will not spend that money until the lawsuit is resolved. If the tax is overturned, a published report states the City will return the money to voters or gas stations.
