Super-Majority Amendment on Sarasota Ballot

SARASOTA -

Sarasota County voters will get to vote on extending the penny sales tax for another 15 years. The tax was last extended in 1997 and will expire in 2009 unless voters approve the extra 1 percent tax.

Voters will also get to decide on what is being called the super-majority amendment. It would require four out of five county commissioners to agree on future changes in the Comprehensive Plan to increase land use density.
