Committee launches campaign for tax extension
Thursday, July 7, 2011
Want to help Jefferson City government raise $26 million over the next five years, to continue public works improvements it otherwise couldn’t afford?
“Citizens for Continued Progress,” a group promoting the extension of the city’s half-cent capital improvements sales tax for another five years, says all you have to do is vote “yes” on Aug. 2.
With city voters’ approval, the half-cent tax began in 1987, and voters have renewed it four times since.
