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.
