Officials begin verifying signatures on rollback petition

Staff Writer

A petition to force a rollback election over the tax rate at Howard College has been turned over to the Howard County Election Administrator's office, college officials said.

The election office has until Oct. 25 to verify that the petition contains enough valid signatures to force the college to hold a rollback election, in which voters would decide whether to accept the college's new tax rate or force HC to go with a lower tax levy.
