AMBOY – The Amboy school district wants to get the word out about the proposed 1 percent sales tax for school facilities.

Officials plan a meeting for 7:30 p.m. today at Amboy Community Building.

On Tuesday, Lee County voters will decide whether to impose the 1 percent sales tax. The tax revenue would be divided among the county’s public school districts based on enrollment.

“We want to use this [meeting] as an opportunity to educate the community about how we will spend those funds,” Superintendent Jeff Thake said.

Call the superintendent’s office at 815-857-2164 for more information.
