Murray Park Referendum Petition Hits Halfway Mark
The petition will need 3,039 signatures to be placed on the the ballot for November. If voted in, the referendum will put in place a 5 cent tax per 100 dollars’ worth of assessed property for funding. The tax would bring about $1 million to the Murray-Calloway Parks and Recreation Department for the installation of lights, improved accessibility, repairs to the city pool, and trail and road maintenance. The Murray City Council unanimously endorsed the tax in March. According to the Murray Ledger & Times, the Murray Woman's Club has also stated its support of the tax. Tab Brockman, Parks Director, hopes to attain the rest of the necessary signatures by the end of the month.
