Mayor Houston Says Sales Tax Increase May Be Necessary for Infrastructure Needs


Mayor Mike Houston says a sales tax increase may have to be part of his forthcoming plan to pay for extensive infrastructure improvements.

 

Houston is under pressure from alderman to produce a plan to pay for tens of millions of dollars in needed street, sidewalk and sewer repairs… something the mayor initially said he would produce within 30 days of taking office, nearly two years ago.

 

The mayor says that while video gambling will generate some revenue for infrastructure, it won’t be enough… and a sales tax increase may have to be part of the mix.

 

Houston still has not set a specific date for completing the plan and presenting it to aldermen.
