POLL: County to Update, Educate on Potential Penny Tax
The 'transportation penny' will be on the ballot in November. Will you vote for it?
A one-cent sales tax would raise more than $1 billion over the next 20 years, but it has to pass the voters first.
To edcuate voters on the proposed tax increase, county officials will be hosting several meetings--one of which is in Blythewood on Wednesday night.
If approved, the tax would go for major road, bike and pedestrian greenway projects, and 20 years of bus service.
