Commissioners, school board members to meet on sales tax

Palm Beach County commissioners and county school board members will hold a joint meeting today to discuss their plan to raise the 6-cent sales tax by a penny on the dollar.

Such an increase would generate $2.7 billion over 10 years to pay for repairs to roads, bridges, schools and county buildings.

The meeting is scheduled to be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Center for Bachelor’s Programs building on Palm Beach State College’s Lake Worth campus.
