Sharing Raise in Local Sales Tax Increase With City Floated At School Board Meeting


District 186 is floating a new idea as it tries to find money to help close a multi-million-dollar budget gap.

 

At Monday’s finance committee meeting, Superintendent Walter Milton raised the possibility of an intergovernmental agreement with the City of Springfield… where the city would seek a sales tax increase and share the proceeds with the school district.

 

Milton says there has been almost no discussion on the idea, but thinks the district has to look at every possibility.

 

Several other revenue ideas have also been suggested, but all have serious drawbacks.
