HOWELL, MI (WLNS) – With pothole season in full swing and commercials for the May ballot proposal also appearing, local officials wants to make sure you are informed about exactly what is on the ballot.
The Livingston County Board of Commissioners is hosting a town hall meeting tonight. The proposal calls for an increase in the sales tax. It also eliminates the gas tax and instead creates a wholesale tax on fuel.
If voters approve the proposal it could raise more than a billion dollars a year for roads while also generating money for schools, transportation and local governments.
Tonight’s meeting starts at 6:30 at the public safety complex in Howell.
