School tax recall moves ahead
Woodford County Clerk Sandy Jones determined on Wednesday morning that a sufficient number of qualified voters signed a recall petition opposing a school facilities tax approved by the Woodford County Board of Education.
The school board previously voted to conduct a special election to give Woodford County voters an opportunity to vote on the proposed tax to pay for a new high school (5.5 cents per $100 of assessed property value) if Jones certified the recall petition.
The date when a special election on the proposed tax could be held, however, was uncertain.
The school board has a work session scheduled on Monday, April 9, at 6 p.m. at central office on Pisgah Pike, to discuss the facilities tax and take possible action related to the petition.
