Saluki Tax

The Saluki Tax or percentage of the city sales tax will expire in a year or two. If residents of the city want to get rid of it, now is the time to lobby the city council to do so. The last time a portion of the city sales tax expired, a portion used to retire the bonds passe to pay for school roofing, council figured in the additional revenue into the following year's budget and  found it easier to pass an ordinance maintaining the tax rather than letting it expire, as it was supposed to, and debating the merits of reinstating that portion of the sales tax.

One of the selling points for any increase in a city sales tax has been that it is only for a limited period of years and will expire once that time elapses. Allowing any portion of the sales tax to expire has not happened, at least as far as I can recall.
