Lively discussion needed

Re: Capital Facilities Tax

A 5 percent sales tax is available on Nov. 5. We can choose to re-impose the 1 percent Capital Facilities Tax or not. We should carefully debate this important issue, as it provides funding for many capital projects in the county.

While it’s a small amount to each individual, it creates a pool of money to be used for local projects. Let’s hope for a fully-informed voter, a lively discussion on the issue and a large turn-out for the single-issue, special election this Nov. 5.
