Supporters of a citizen-initiated half-cent sales tax increase submitted 470 signatures on Monday to have the question put on the November ballot. Before it can be officially placed on the ballot, the county will need to verify that at least 396 of the signatures are valid. The initiative calls for allocating one-quarter-cent sales tax to fund construction of a new library and one-quarter-cent to fund construction of long-awaited ball fields, amenities and infrastructure on the Town’s 118-acre park site off State Route 260 and McCracken Lane.
