Opposition Group To Oppose Half Cent Sales Tax
An organized effort will be made in the final three weeks before the November 5th election to get voters to turn down the Riley County Commission's Half Cent Sales Tax.
For the past fifteen years the Riley County Commission has Budgeted money to repair county roads and bridges. Taxpayers in the county have paid that tax and for the same fifteen years the Commissioners have taken the money and spent in on other things.
According to county records from 1995 to 2001 the Commissioners have spent more than $4 million on Capital Improvement Items and only $226,166.57 on county road and bridges.
Yard signs have been ordered and will be delivered starting next Wednesday. If you would like to show your support for this No Vote campaign call the Free Press at 537-8953 or 539-2760 and leave your name, address and phone number on the recorder.
