Topeka residents may be looking at a sales tax increase rather soon. Chamber officers and city officials met Saturday morning to discuss the possible sales tax increase in Topeka.
The increase would be dedicated to improving city streets, impacting city crime and cleaning up neighborhoods.
Two polls have been completed, both indicating community support for the improvements.
Citizens would ultimately decide on the increase. The city is currently working together with the chamber to develop a ballot question that you may see during this November's election or the city election next april.
