Ridgeland again seeks sales tax option to aid in redevelopment
IT LOOKS LIKE Ridgeland has a long road ahead in the state Legislature this year, with Gov. Phil Bryant expressing a lack of support for a bill that the city has tried to pass for several years now.
The Citizens for Economic Development Act, or CEDA, would let any Mississippi city hold a vote on whether to raise its sales tax by up to one percent, in order to fund redevelopment and/or infrastructure work.
Sixty percent of voters would have to agree to the increase, which would be temporary.
