Monticello voters reject sales tax for events center; hospital tax passes

In a special election Tuesday night, Monticello voters by a wide margin rejected a city-wide, quarter-cent sales tax to fund an events center while Drew County voters approved a county-wide, quarter-cent sales tax to fund an expansion of Drew Memorial Hospital. The events center tax failed 69 percent to 31 percent. The hospital tax passed 58 percent to 42 percent.

    May be they could use the tax they collected for the event center to pave some of the city streets. As our council promised to do years ago.
