POLL: Police Station Tax Hike with Sunset Provision
Take our poll and tell us if you would support a tax hike to pay for a new police station if it had a time limit
City administrators are reviewing alternatives for replacing Kent's aging police department, which originally dates to 1924 and has experienced numerous structural and mechanical failures in recent years.
One of those possible alternatives could be to put a 0.25 percent income tax increase on the ballot with the addition of a sunset provision, which would establish a set time limit when the tax increase would eventually expire.
Ultimately, Kent City Council will decide how to address the issue of the police station.
But we want to know what you think. Would you support a tax increase to pay for a new police station if the increase eventually expired?
