School superintendents to push for sales tax hike
Money raised would go for building projects; talks still in early stage
STERLING – Some Whiteside County school superintendents have decided to try to get the ball rolling on a 1 percent sales tax hike.
The superintendents met Tuesday morning and discussed the possibility, Sterling Superintendent Tad Everett said. His board will discuss the issue at tonight’s meeting, and might vote on it in November or December, he said. Plans are to try to get the issue on the April 9 ballot.
If passed, money raised would be used on building projects only, as mandated by state law.
