The Jackson R-2 School Board Listens to Presentation Regarding Use Tax

A splash pad, extended trails, field drainage improvements: Those are just some items a use tax may fund, Jackson, City officials say. The Jackson Board of Aldermen have committed to applying use tax revenue to the city’s parks and recreation department if the ballot question passes on November 2, 2021. Many of these projects may benefit Jackson School District students, officials said. The funds that are generated by the use tax would be put towards soccer, softball and Jackson Area Youth Football field improvements. Additional projects include improving and expanding the city’s 6-mile trail system officials said.  Jackson officials would like to extend a trail from Jackson High School’s parking lot to a nearby soccer field.
