Laurie voters won’t decide on a sales tax for public safety in April after all…at least not the one initially proposed by the Board of Alderman. At this week’s meeting, the board is expected to vote to repeal an ordinance calling for a quarter-percent sales tax to help fund the police department. The repeal ordinance says that the ordinance to establish the tax lacks legal authority under state statutes. The state law cited indicates that cities can impose a tax of half a percent, 7/8ths of a percent, or one percent on retail sales. It’s not clear at this time if the city will attempt to pass a higher percentage tax, but it’s not included on the latest agenda. Laurie’s board meets Tuesday at 6pm.
