“Even though it’s a half-cent sales tax, we will never collect more than we are presently collecting,” Klussman said about a proposed tax on the ballot in November. “More than anything, it’s to clear up funds and things like that.”

Klussman said that if the tax passes, the Board will terminate the capital improvements tax which, for now, is slated to expire in 2015. The Board will also hear from a local business owner who hasn’t been paying the required Missouri state sales tax.

“It’s a chance for them to more or less address the Board of Alderman and tell them what’s been done,” added Klussman. “The decision will either be to not take any action, to suspend the business license, or to revoke the business license.”

The board will also talk about the upcoming Fall Festival and will schedule a special meeting to discuss a replacement for Ken Landis. The hearing for the possible business license revocation will start at 6:30 with the regular meeting following at 7:00 on Monday night at Concordia City Hall.
