Your Opinion: Home Builders back city sales tax extension

July 28th, 2011 by Heath Clarkston, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the membership of the Home Builders Association of Central Missouri, we publicly acknowledge our strong support for the continuance of the Jefferson City half-cent sales tax.

The city has continued to use these funds responsibly and has properly outlined the intended use if this sales tax is renewed. Approximately 60 percent of the funds will go directly into much-needed public works projects including stormwater infrastructure and improvements.

The proceeds from this sales tax have been used for over 25 years to make our community a better place to live and work. On Aug. 2, please join the HBA membership by voting yes on Proposition 1.
