Sales pitch set for ‘Transformation’ tax
Thursday, October 13, 2011
Local Chamber of Commerce supporters on Monday will formally ask the Jefferson City Council to hold a public vote in February seeking a 10-year half-cent sales tax to raise more than $41 million for the chamber’s “Transformation” plan.
At the Transformation steering committee meeting Wednesday, members received a draft ordinance that will be presented to the City Council on Monday and could be acted on at the Nov. 7 council meeting.
The Transformation process produced a final list of 30 projects with a cost of nearly $41 million.
