Groups invited to debate local option sales tax in Cedar Rapids

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Rapids Free Press is hosting a debate Wednesday on the local option sales tax that will go before voters next week.

The debate will be at the El Kahir Shrine at 1400 Blairs Ferry Road NE in Cedar Rapids at 7:00 p.m.

Groups such as "We Can Do Better CR" are invited to attend.

Voters in Linn County will decide on March 6 whether to extend the local option sales tax for 10 years with all money from Cedar Rapids going to fund flood protection for both sides of the Cedar River.

Last year, voters defeated a measure that would have extended the tax for 20 years.

The current local option sales tax in Linn County doesn't end until June 30, 2014.
