PBC Administrator Baker explains details of sales tax plan

Palm Beach County Administrator Verdenia Baker explained the details of the county’s plan to raise the sales tax to a group of planning and growth management officials Tuesday morning.

Baker said the sales tax increase, which would generate an estimated $2.7 billion over the next decade, would allow the county to repair roads, bridges and county buildings that were neglected during the recent economic downturn.

Baker is expected to make a similar presentation from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. this evening at Suncoast Community High School in Riviera Beach. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Reach more about the campaign for passage of the sales tax increase later today at http://www.mypalmbeachpost.com.
