Be heard on the Little Rock tax plan

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2011 at 3:44 PM

The city of Little Rock has announced a series of hearings to discuss a sales tax proposal for a special election in September — a permanent increase of the existing half-cent tax by 150 percent, to 1.25 cents on the dollar, for operations, and an eight-year half-cent tax for capital projects. These will support a list of "priority needs" outlined this week.

The public hearings:

Monday, June 13, 6:00 p.m. — Northwest Police Sub-Station, 1001 Kanis Road

Tuesday, June 14, 7:00 p.m. — Southwest Community Center, 6401 Baseline Road

Wednesday, June 15, 6:00 p.m. — Fulbright Elementary School, 300 Pleasant Valley Dr.

Thursday, June 23, 6:00 p.m. — Pulaski Heights Presbyterian, 4401 Woodlawn Dr.

Saturday, June 25, 10:00 a.m. — Hinton Resource Center, 3805 West 12th Street

More public hearings will be set up and announced by the end of next week.
