Wichitans are voting on the City’s proposed sales tax on November 4. The initiative includes community oversight of the funds collected from the sales tax. Chamber members are encouraged to learn more about the Citizens Oversight Committee and to consider completing and submitting an application form found on the City’s website: http://www.wichita.gov/Government/Departments/CMO/Pages/BetterFuture.aspx
Nominees must be residents of the City of Wichita and a financial background is helpful.
The City’s website (wichita.gov) is also a good source of information about the background and plans associated with the sales tax.
A Wichita Eagle story about the committee indicates that the deadline to apply is the end of November. Read the story by following this link.
