The City of Manhattan will host four open houses to educate local residents about a question that will appear on the General Election ballot on November 8th.
Voters living within Manhattan city limits will be asked to consider a two-tenths of a cent increase in the Manhattan sales tax to fund street repairs and Safe Routes to School projects.
The open houses will give voters a chance to learn more about what the funds would support, why they’re needed, and how the tax increase would affect their households.
The times, dates, and locations for the open houses are listed below:
6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15th at MFD Headquarters Fire Station, 2000 Denison Ave.
6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 at City Hall, 1101 Poyntz Ave.
6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 at Fire Station 3, 2727 Amherst Ave.
6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 at Fire Station 5, 3900 Vanesta Dr.
The Sept. 29 meeting will also be recorded and made available on the City’s website. Additional information is available on the city’s website.
