The Mercer County Board discusses the county wheel tax issue, but takes no final action. The item will be back on the agenda at the July 2nd county board meeting says District 3 county board member Ron Fullerlove of Sherrard.
District 5 county board member Steve Moreland represents voters in the city of Aledo.
County board members heard one resident speak out against the county wheel tax proposal during public comment and District 2 county board member Dan Hare told the board the issue should be placed on the ballot for voters to decide.
Also last night, the county board learned another Dollar General is coming to Mercer County. In addition to Sherrard, a new store will also be built in Alexis.
