Upcoming Public Meetings for County Road Referendum

Oct 20, 2016

Peoria County encourages the public to attend one of our town hall meetings to discuss the sales tax referendum for County road improvement projects. All meetings are from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Lutheran Hillside Village and St. Paul Baptist Church were recently added.

The Peoria County Board has placed a sales tax referendum on the November 8, 2016 ballot specifically for the improvement of County-owned roads. The referendum asks voters to authorize Peoria County to increase its share of sales tax by 1/4%, which must go specifically to improve County-owned roads. This sales tax increase would end after 15 years. The tax is on retail goods, excluding food, pharmaceuticals, and titled goods.
