City To Host Three More Town Hall Meetings

Mayor Chokwe Lumumba and the City of Jackson will host three additional town hall meetings to discuss the merits of the proposed 1-percent sales tax option currently before Jackson voters, the city announced Monday morning.

Wards 1 and 2 will meet at 6 p.m. on Dec. 19 at Word and Worship Church at 6286 Hanging Moss, Wards 5, 6 and 7 will meet at 6 p.m. on Dec. 22 at the Battlefield Community Center at 953 W. Porter St. and Wards 3 and 4 will meet at 6 p.m. at St. John M.B. Church at 4895 Medgar Evers Blvd.

Jacksonians will vote on the referendum on Jan. 14, 2014. If approved, the city would gain a penny on every dollar spent for all retail sales except for groceries, prescription drugs, hotel rooms, food and drinks at restaurants and television cable packages.
