$25,000 collected on Fairbanks tax issue

Posted: Friday, October 02, 2009

FAIRBANKS - If fundraising is any indication, a proposed citywide sales tax in Fairbanks could be a cliffhanger on election night.

New campaign finance reports show supporters of the tax have raised $12,400 and opponents of the tax have collected $13,300.

If approved Oct. 6, the sales tax would offset a reduction in property taxes.

The measure calls for spending any extra income from the sales tax on road work and police and fire protection. The city's firefighter union donated $3,000 to the pro-sales tax group.
