Don’t be surprised if you receive something in your mailbox this week from The Chamber. The greater Grand Forks business group is sending out 10-thousand mailings to potential voters regarding next month’s sales tax election. Chamber President Barry Wilfarht says the proposed half-cent tax will target water and roads repairs. Wilfarht says the message will include bullet points to consider plus instructions on how to obtain an absentee ballot.
He says the goal is to encourage a good turnout at the ballot box.
The Chamber is also hosting the first of two information luncheon meetings today for members to learn more about the 20-year tax plan.
