Peoria County residents could help repair roads.

PEORIA, Il. - By voting "yes" for a sales tax increase Peoria County residents could help repair roads.

The County Board approved placing a referendum question on the November 6th ballot. Voters will be asked to raise the sales tax one half percentage point to finance the $69 million in road repairs needed over the next 12 years.

Several board members called the referendum a last resort.
