The Lawrence City Council has decided to ask voters to renew a 0.55% city-wide sales tax for 10 years. The revenue from this tax would go to infrastructure improvements (0.3%), transit operations (0.2%), and affordable housing projects (0.05%). Previously, the final 0.05% that will now go to affordable housing was slated for transit expansion projects.
