After years of discussion, the Jefferson City Board of Education voted Thursday to place a 55-cent tax increase on the April 2 ballot.

With a unanimous 6-0 vote, the board called an election to issue general obligation bonds - which would increase local taxes an additional 30 cents - and increase the operating tax levy by 25 cents. The current tax rate for the Jefferson City School District is $3.6770 per $100 of assessed valuation.
