Lopez: Sales Tax Hike Could Address Both Construction And Education Needs

The vice-president of the Springfield school board is promising more details soon on how a sales tax increase for school construction could lead to more money for hiring teachers and other direct educational expenses. 


Adam Lopez is reviving the idea of a countywide 1% sales tax hike, with the money divided among all Sangamon County school districts for construction projects.  But for District 186, Lopez contends there is a way to use the proceeds to pay down old bonds… and then use the savings to increase educational funding. 


Lopez says the district’s business manager will lay out the details of the plan at the next school board meeting on October 21st.
