Voters in McFarland may be asked to vote on a tax increase on utilities.
Residents took part in a town hall Tuesday evening where residents were invited to learn more about the proposed 10-year utility tax and where the money would go if it’s approved.
The tax would be a 5 percent tax on the cost of utility services before any additional fees or taxes.
McFarland City Manager John Wooner says the tax would bring in about $490,000 to the city’s general fund and would be used to pay for public works projects and emergency services.
The city council will decide if the tax measure goes to the November ballot.
