Quorum Court to vote on Transportation sales-tax issue tonight: This may be your final time to comment on the proposal
Tonight is the second reading for the ¼-percent sales-tax measure that the Washington County Quorum Court can put on the ballot in May. The ¼-percent sales tax would be used to EXPAND Ozark Regional Transit to make it a truly viable alternative transportation option. This has obvious environmental and economic benefits, as well as social benefits.
I hope you’ll consider coming to the Quorum Court tonight at 6:00 pm to address our elected representatives about the need for public transit and your support for putting this initiative on the ballot in May. We can move Fayetteville and Washington County ahead significantly and provide leadership to the NWA region by funding public transit at the level at which it needs to be funded.
