Jefferson City sales tax on August ballot
Tuesday, May 17, 2011
At the Monday night Jefferson City Council meeting, members suspended the rules, and both read and unanimously approved bill to place renewal of the city half-cent sales tax on the Aug. 2 ballot.
If approved by the voters, the extension — otherwise known as Sales Tax F — would begin April 1, 2012, and would remain in place for the next five years.
Before the council moved to suspend its rules, City Attorney Nathan Nickolaus explained why it was necessary.
