Educators Say Taxes Are Needed For Education
Washington County schools are 2.5-million dollars short while Johnson City schools need another 3.6-million. Officials are talking about a new idea to convince taxpayers to pay more for education. Some are calling for all tax increase funding to go to schools. If an increase is passed local sales tax will go up from 8 and a half to 8 and 3/4 cents a dollar. That's the maximum allowed by Tennessee. For the next 2 1/2 months Washington County, Tennessee voters are considering important state and local issues. Johnson City and Washington County voters will see the August ballot offering a sales tax increase to fund education. The next Johnson City Commission meeting is June 7th. (bg)
