Upcoming Sales Tax Meeting
Wednesday, 02 July 2014 08:23
Residents of Valentine will have the opportunity on July 8th to have questions answered about the upcoming sales tax renewal vote on July 15th. Voters will decide whether or not to extend the current sales tax rate at 1.5%, which is the same rate that it has been since 2006. The tax would continue to be used by the city for infrastructure such as storm sewer renovations, curb and gutter work, and paving projects. It has also been used to support the fire and police departments and direct property tax relief.
On July 8th at 7 pm at the Valentine Public Library, there will be a discussion with questions and answers about the sales tax, including the proposed golf course and Mid Plains Community College expansion. Attend the meeting to become more informed about the sales tax issue.
