JEFFERSON CITY – The Osage County Library Board today unanimously approved a motion to place a levy increase measure on the August ballot in Osage County.
The action was taken after the Missouri River Regional Library Board of Trustees recommend that the two taxing entities – the Osage County Library Board and the Jefferson City/Cole County Board – ask voters in the two counties to approve a 10 cent levy increase.
The current voter approved levy sits at $0.20 and voters will be asked to raise that to $0.30.
The Jefferson City/Cole County Board will meet at 6 p.m. on March 27 in MRRL Annex Board Room to discuss the levy increase proposal.
