Tuesday, September 27, 2011
The Jefferson City Council has been asked to sponsor a 10-year half-cent economic development sales tax to pay for 31 proposed “Transformation” projects.
At a council work session Monday, Randy Allen, president of the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce, gave a presentation on the Chamber’s economic development strategic plan “Transformation.”
Allen said the goal is to have the issue on the ballot Feb. 7, 2012, to allow projects to begin as soon as possible.
