Where should sales tax go?

On July 1, a new dedicated sales tax will take effect; proceeds of the tax must be spent to support activities related to clean water, land and habitat, parks and trails and arts and cultural heritage.

The Minnesota State Arts Board and the Lake Region Arts Council will host a public forum in Fergus Falls to seek input on how to invest arts funding available as a result of the new tax.

The forum will be held on Wednesday, June 24, at 3:30 p.m. in the Lake Region Arts Council, 133 South Mill Street, Fergus Falls. This meeting is one of 12 forums that will take place throughout the state.

Forums are free and open to the public, but registration is strongly encouraged. Contact the Arts Board to register at (800) 866-2787 or
