The Palm Beach County Commission will meet on May 3 to discuss a plan to raise the sales tax to pay for upgrades to roads, bridges, schools and county buildings.
Cities are entitled a cut of the sales tax proceeds, which are expected to be $2.7 billion over 10 years. Because the sales tax money would also be shared with the Palm Beach County School District, elected officials representing a majority of city residents had to approve the split.
That threshold was reached once West Palm Beach and Wellington approved the plan.
County Administrator Verdenia Baker said the sales tax issue will be added to the May 3 agenda.
