Sales tax referendum going back on the ballot
Public to be asked how money should be spent
DIXON – The 1-cent sales tax referendum will be on the ballot again in Lee County this April.
Despite a 5-1 vote in favor of the resolution Wednesday, though, the Dixon School Board is reconsidering its plans to build a sports and activities complex with the funds. A decision on how that potential money would be spent could come in February, after a public planning session Jan. 26.
In November, 58.9 percent of Lee County voters rejected the tax, which would have brought about the construction of the sports and activities complex in Dixon and maintenance upgrades in other county schools. Sales tax proceeds can be spent on infrastructure, maintenance and building upgrades only.
