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.
