Sales tax referendum to cost $456,000

For those interested in such things, the May 20 county-wide referendum to add one penny to the sales tax is estimated to cost just under $456,000. (Click for link to pdf file)

Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Mike Ertel provided the estimate, and the Seminole County Board of County Commissioners approved a budget amendment request for $425,985  at its March 11 meeting. The remaining $30,000 is for county printing, which does not require a budget amendment.
