Time Check area of Cedar Rapids, June 13th, 2008
In March of 2009,
a Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) was approved by the voters to:
Ten percent (10%) for property tax relief; The specific purposes for which the revenues shall otherwise be expended are: 90% for the acquisition and rehabilitation of flood damaged housing caused by the flooding of 2008, and matching funds for federal flood dollars to assist with flood recovery or flood protection.
Instead this is what we've gotten:
And not a single "Penny" for Flood Protection!
On May 3rd, 2011 and on March 6th, 2012, the voters of Cedar Rapids said "NO" to extending the sales tax beyond the year 2014.
We have a Better, more Specific Idea!
