Would tax hike fix city’s streets?
MORRISON – Morrison is considering asking voters to raise taxes to pay for street improvements, but some people wonder whether the money would be used for that purpose.
“Residents have told me they don’t want any referendum because there’s no guarantee it would go to where it was supposed to,” said Alderwoman Marti Wood, who opposes raising taxes. “Sales and property tax revenue go into the general fund. How would the money from the new tax be set aside?”
On Monday, the City Council will decide whether to put a referendum to increase sales or property taxes before voters in the Nov. 6 election.
