Voters in Sarasota County on Tuesday will consider $300 million of revenue bonds as part of a program to fast-track infrastructure projects and jump-start the local economy.

The county is seeking permission to securitize a one-cent sales tax levied exclusively for infrastructure such as roads, parks, and libraries. Voters approved a 15-year extension to the tax in November, which begins Sept. 1, 2009, and runs through Dec. 31, 2024.
