In Nancy Tate's article submitted for the Dec. 12 issue of this paper, our elected State Representative included in her posting the following, "One of the major issues brought to us by county and city officials was their desire for more flexibility when it comes to raising local tax revenue. Local officials want the ability to raise more revenue to cover new projects and skyrocketing pension costs, including the flexibility to impose small sales tax increases to pay for local projects. Even though this is a challenging issue that I believe should correspond with comprehensive tax reform on the state level, it was good to hear the perspective of mayors, county judge-executives, and other local officials on this issue.”
