Support new local option sales tax measure
As members of the Auditorium Board, we would like to encourage Worthington residents to support the optional 1/2 cent sales tax which is on the ballot on November sixth.
Every person in our city who uses Memorial Auditorium has benefited from the previous 1/2 cent tax. The new seating is beautiful and comfortable. Asbestos was removed from below the flooring and the new floor looks terrific. Major sound and lighting enhancements enable patrons to have a more enjoyable and interactive theater experience, whether in live shows, watching movies, or attending other events.
The auditorium and Buss Field, which also benefited from the previous 1/2 cent tax, are better, more usable and safer community spaces thanks to the voters of our city. Please vote yes in November on the 1/2 cent sales tax which will support further improvements in our community including an aquatic center, park upgrades, ice arena improvements and water quality issues.
