Rochester City Sales Tax Debate Tonight
(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Tonight, ABC 6 News is partnering with RCTC and the League of Women Voters for a debate on the upcoming Rochester city sales tax vote.
In November, voters will decide if they'd like to extend the half-cent local sales tax. It has been in place since 1983. The money, this time around, would fund things like road projects and new facilities at RCTC and UMR. It is an all-or-nothing deal. There are 10 total projects, but they'll be voted on as a group.
ABC 6 News Anchor Laura Lee will moderate the debate. Everyone is encouraged to attend to learn more about the tax and how the money will be spent.
