TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville City Board of Education on Monday approved a letter to be sent to the Trussville City Council requesting a property tax vote to fund two new elementary schools.
The city council could approve of a possible tax referendum at its Dec. 10 meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. at Trussville City Hall.
Dates for the special vote could be Feb. 25, March 11 or March 25. School officials seemed to talk more about the Feb. 25 date at Monday’s work session.
Mayor Gene Melton was at Monday’s meeting and said he’d like to receive more responses to a survey mailed to Trussville residents Saturday, a survey that includes thoughts on how to fund the new schools.
“We need everybody to respond to the letter, good or bad,” Melton said.
