Spring Valley voters being asked again to support a sales tax hike

Posted by wlpo on May 24, 2016

While the L-P School Board contemplates asking voters to raise taxes for a renovated high school, the Spring Valley City Council has decided they will ask their taxpayers for more money with a sales tax increase.

According to the NewsTribune, the council Monday night voted to have a question on the November ballot asking to raise the city’s sales tax by a half of a percent. If passed, the sales tax in Spring Valley would be higher than La Salle and Oglesby but lower than Peru.

The additional sax tax revenue could bring the city $118,000 in new revenue. That money would pay for roadwork in the city.

Voters in Spring Valley shot down a sales tax increase during the March election.
