Blount County voters decide on wheel tax on Tuesday

Posted:

MARYVILLE (WATE) – Blount County voters will vote on a proposed wheel tax on Tuesday. 

Money from the $35 tax would go to the school system.  This year, Blount County Schools faced a multi-million dollar budget shortfall. 

Last week, early voting ended with 5,500 ballots tallied.  According to Blount County Election Administrator Libby Breeding, that number is typical for similar referendums. 

The polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
