  • To the editor:
    As the sales tax goes to 9.15 percent on Tuesday, remember the citizens voted for the increase Well, at least the property owners did.
    Most city of Leavenworth addresses received a card in the mail in January 2014 that read: "The Leavenworth City Commission is asking voters to approve a 1-cent sales tax solely for the purpose of reducing property taxes. Our intent is to lower property taxes by about 40 percent in 2015".
    Now we know the intent of future voting for sales-property taxes by the Board of Education and Leavenworth County will be for the sole purpose for reducing taxes. LOL
