Voters in the capital city could be asked to dig deeper into their wallets to fund local infrastructure improvements.
The Advocate reports that papers filed Thursday indicate that Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome wants the Metro Council to approve a ballot issue calling for a 30-year, half-cent sales tax increase to fund the work.
If the panel agrees, the issue would go before voters on December 8th, potentially raising $900 million in revenue.
The council is expected to render a decision at its August 8th meeting.
