Sales tax info meeting Monday at the middle school

ROCK FALLS – An informational meeting about the proposed sales tax increase in Whiteside County will be held at 7 p.m. Monday.

School officials again are asking voters to support a 1 percentage-point sales tax increase for school facilities – the third such vote since November 2008.

If voters approve the increase on April 9, each school district will get a proportion of the annual county sales tax revenue based on its share of overall county enrollment, regardless of whether the district supported the measure.

Each district could use its share of money to construct new buildings or add on to or renovate existing buildings; make facilities handicapped accessible; repair parking lots and sidewalks; or repair aging roofs and boilers, among other improvements.

A district also could use the money to abate property taxes that have been levied to pay off existing construction bonds.

The meeting will be held in the cafeteria at Rock Falls Middle School, 1701 12th Ave. Call 815-626-2604 for more information.
