D1 - Approve Amended Resolution for Half-Cent sales tax to appear on November 2020 General Election Ballot (Studdard)
The School Board has previously approved a Resolution to place the question of a half-cent sales surtax on the November 2020 general election ballot. The legislature has amended the requirements of F.S. 212.055(6) to require that the Resolution contain language to the effect that the proceeds of the sales surtax shall be shared with eligible charter schools. Additionally, the Ballot Summary must contain language that the proceeds will be shared with eligible charter schools. This Amended Resolution contains such language. If it is approved it must be sent to the County Commission who must approve it, and then adopt the summary and ballot language into their own Resolution which shall be sent to the Supervisor of elections with directions for placing the amended language on the ballot for November.
The Amended Resolution must be approved in order to place the amended language before the County Commission for placement on the ballot.
School Board previously passed a similar Resolution which was approved by the County Commission.
It is expected that the Board of County Commission will accept the amended Resolution and direct the Supervisor of Elections to place the matter on the 2020 general election ballot using the amended ballot language.
