A potentially powerful new funding tool is being proposed for Kentucky communities and, if passed, local residents would ultimately decide how it is used.
The Local Option Sales Tax is a limited increase in sales tax — in Kentucky it could rise from 6 percent to 7 percent — that is used for a specific project in the community where the tax is levied. The citizens in that community choose the project and then the project is eventually voted on by the community as a whole.
