What will be on the ballot?

The ballot language that voters will see on election day is strictly set by the Missouri Legislature. The ballot will read:

"For the purpose of funding maintenance and improvement of City streets, shall the City of Blue Springs, Missouri impose a local use tax at the same rate as the total local sales tax rate, currently two and one-half percent (2 1/2%), provided that if the local sales tax rate is reduced or raised by voter approval, the local use tax rate shall also be reduced or raised by the same action?"
