CIP Tax Up for Renewal in June

The News-Leader reports today on the renewal of the capital improvement projects tax — a 1/4-cent sales tax that will expire in September. The vote is set for June.

This is the money that has paid, and will continue to pay, for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure in Springfield — a small portion of the $26 million the tax is expected to generate over the next three years.

Let all those bicyclists and pedestrains you see enjoying the June weather remind you to vote “yes.” Don’t let this one slip away.
