City Council to Vote on Sales Tax Ballot - 2/10/14

One of the agenda items on the Shawnee City Council meeting for Monday Feb 10, 2014 is a sales tax question.

Sales tax issues have to be submitted to the citizens.  What the council votes on is how much to ask for, how to word the ballot, and which election to have it presented to the voters.

Among the items to be considered are:

1.  A renewal of the 1/8 Parks and Pipes program
2   A new sales tax of either 1/8 or 2/8 for pavement
3.  Whether to make the above separate questions or combine them into one question
4.  Create a special mail ballot election in the spring (at an estimated cost in excess of $63K) or to put it on the November general election ballot at no charge to Shawnee.

The council meeting starts at 7:30PM.
