Wenatchee Mayor, Frank Kuntz continues his campaign voyage through Chelan and DouglasCounties with a stop at the Manson Grange this Saturday afternoon.
Mayor Kuntz remains the leader in the campaign to resolve the TownToyotaCenter’s financial struggles, after the arena’s debt went into default last December.
Mayor Kuntz says he was invited to attend the Manson Grange meeting and jumped at the opportunity to hit on some hot topics.
The Wenatchee City Council voted to impose a 0.2 percent sales tax within its own jurisdiction, and now turns to the remaining 8 jurisdictions that make up the Public Facilities District, to approve a district wide 0.1 percent sales tax increase. The tax increase measure will be on the April 17th ballot which should be in your mailbox at the end of this month.
That tax, if approved, would be used to pay off the $42 million debt and assure the ill-fated event center sufficient revenue for daily operations.
If you would like to hear more from Wenatchee Mayor Frank you are invited to attend the public meeting: Saturday, at the Manson Grange Hall @ 1 PM."CLICK HERE" for Audio
