Taxes 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 taxes will go up from 8 and a half to 8 and a quarter which is the maximum allowed by the state. For the next three months Tennessee voters are considering these important state and local issues. Johnson City and Washington County voters will see the August ballot offering a sales tax increase to fund education which School leaders say they need. The next Johnson City Commission meeting comes up June seventh. (bg)
