Half-Cent Sales Tax

Half-Cent Web Header

Our community is growing at an exponential rate, leaving many of our schools over-crowded and in dire need of improvement. Upgrading our schools improves every student’s chance for success, which is why I am proposing a Half-Cent Sales Tax.

The Half-Cent Sales Tax would be shared by all, including visitors who pass through, not just the citizens living in Hendry County. The funds generated from the half-cent sales tax would support  much needed improvements such as flooring, HVAC, surveillance equipment, access control, and school technology. It would also help pay debt service on large capital projects such as roofs,  LHS building additions and much more.
