Additional Public Meeting Scheduled for Road Referendum on November 1

Oct 26, 2016

Peoria County encourages the public to attend one of our town hall meetings to discuss the sales tax referendum for County road improvement projects. Heddington Oaks was recently added on November 1. All meetings are from 6:00-8:00 p.m. EXCEPT the November 1 meeting, which is from 7:00-9:00 pm.

The Peoria County Board has placed a sales tax referendum on the November 8, 2016 ballot specifically for the improvement of County-owned roads. The referendum asks voters to authorize Peoria County to increase its share of sales tax by 1/4%, which must go specifically to improve County-owned roads. This sales tax increase would end after 15 years. The tax is on retail goods, excluding food, pharmaceuticals, and titled goods.
