The city’s transit advisory board wants a quarter-cent sales tax to save the city’s bus system for 10 years, a request it plans to make to the Wichita City Council later this month.
The transit panel has scheduled a 10 a.m. May 18 special meeting to approve a resolution asking the council for a November vote on the 10-year sales tax proposal, which is projected to generate upwards of $14 million annually. By state statute, the sales tax would end after a decade.
That resolution went before the transit board today, but generated enough objections from board members to require a week of tweaking.
