Count Pasco's pennies
The committee has watched over how the district has spent its share of the local-option 1 percent sales tax since January 2005, when the county began collecting revenue on the voter-approved tax. Several original members of the committee are ending their terms, though, and the district needs some new blood.
Want to be one of the six new committee members who will begin two-year terms in January 2009? The district is accepting applications through June 27. For information call assistant superintendent Ray Gadd at (727) 774-2776, (813) 794-2776 or (352) 524-2776.
