JEFFCO VOTE TODAY!!!

Posted by ALmod on January 24, 2006

Vote yes. Vote no. But by all means, vote.

You have the opportunity to either lower your property taxes after 2007 or to let the rates stay the same for the next 29 years.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Only voters in the county school district, Trussville and Leeds will vote in the referendum.

The tax supports schools in the Jefferson County area. It is not a new tax, but there is a newer tax that collects even more money for schools. (Remember the infamous 1% sales tax that Langford & Co. passed.) Some saw this sales tax as being unnecessary, so with the new income, letting these property taxes phase out over the next year may not hurt as much as some may lead you to believe.

I don’t know about any of you, but after looking at my most recent gas bill, I could use an extra $80 or more. Then again, I currently live just over the St. Clair County line, but I could imagine…

Voters should bring a photo ID. For information on polling places, call Jefferson County Board of Registrars at 325-5550.
