STEVE SMITH • SSMITH@LACLEDERECORD.COM
Laclede County voters will decide on Nov. 8 whether the county surtax on businesses should be lowered.
The Laclede County Commission voted 3-0 Tuesday to place the issue on November’s election ballot.
The ballot issue would ask voters to reduce the commercial property surplus levy on all utility, industrial, commercial and all other real property (land and everything attached to it) that is not agriculture or residential property from $1.03 per $100 assessed valuation to .51 per $100 assessed valuation. The new tax rate would take effect Sept. 1, 2023.
