Learn About the Proposed Bond Referendum and Meals TaxPosted September 11, 2013 at 12:00 AM, Filed Under: Front Page, News
On Nov. 5, Chesterfield County voters will be asked to consider a bond referendum to provide for the renovations or replacements of 10 of the county's oldest schools, the addition of a new elementary school to ease overcrowded classrooms, and the replacement of the county's near-obsolete emergency communications system used by first responders. To help pay for these public education and public safety projects, voters also will be asked to consider a 2 percent meals tax.
Chesterfield County is making every effort to ensure that county residents, businesses and community organizations have as much information as possible before Election Day. County staff will be presenting and answering questions about these very important issues at our regularly scheduled Community Liaison meeting.
The Woodlake Community Association invites all residents to attend on Thursday September 19, 10 am at the SRC Clubhouse, 5000 Woodlake Village Parkway.
Presenters will be from the county attorney’s office, Fire, Sheriff’s office, Police and County School Community Relations office. The presentation itself is about 15 minutes and the team will stay to answer all questions from attendees.
