CoC in Favor of Tax

The Carbondale Chamber of Commerce survey its membership a couple of weeks ago asking for feedback on the position the Chamber should take on the proposed sales tax increase. I heard on WSIU this morning that, based on the survey results, the CoC board has come out in favor to the tax increase. There's nothing about it on the Chamber website yet. I did hear secondhand that, while the members did support the tax increase to fund improved public services, a number did question the wisdom of the $20 million donation for the Arena and stadium projects.

Hopefully, the Chamber will get a position paper out soon.

Thanks for distributing this information. It's helpful for those of us still trying to formulate our personal opinion on the matter.
