STAR Bond Project
STAR Bonds
The City Commission, with the adoption of Resolution No. 121415-1, established an ad hoc committee to explore the use of Sales Tax and Revenue (STAR) Bonds authorized by the State of Kansas to assist in financing major tourism projects.

STAR Bonds would allow the City to capture the State's portion of sales tax, generated within a defined geographic area, to use in financing the development of a major tourism attraction(s) and other related or supporting development.

STAR Bond Committee
The Committee is charged with making recommendations to the City Commission concerning a potential STAR Bond Project in Abilene as follows:

  • recommendation on whether to pursue a STAR Bond Project in partnership with the State of Kansas;
  • recommendation on the geographic boundaries of the STAR Bond Project; and
  • recommendation on a Project scope to be studied further for inclusion in a potential STAR Bond Project application to the State of Kansas.
