  • Before Missouri voters go to the polls in August to decide Constitutional Amendment 7, a state transportation sales tax measure, local citizens can learn more about the issue at an open house in Rolla.
    The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will hold an open house meeting from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at Rolla City Hall, 901 N. Elm St.
    The public is invited to attend the meeting at any time during the advertised hours to speak to regional planning partners and MoDOT representatives. No formal presentations will be made.
    The forum next week is among multiple open house meetings being scheduled across the state regarding the ballot measure.
    On Aug. 5, Missouri voters will decide whether or not to approve Constitutional Amendment 7, a ballot measure to temporarily raise Missouri's sales tax by three-quarters of a cent. All proceeds from the tax would go toward needed transportation improvements across the state.
    The amendment's provisions include the creation of a project list prior to the election so Missourians can see what their tax dollars would fund.
    During the meeting, residents can take a look at the local priorities and share their thoughts and insights.
    More information about the open house, the draft transportation improvement list and an online comment form are available at www.modot.org/movingforward.
