Knox superintendent responds to recallable nickel tax petition

October 23, 2014


With over 2,600 signatures filed on time with the county clerk to petition the ‘recallable nickel tax,” it seems very likely the petition will be validated by the Knox County clerk’s office within the next 30 days. In lieu of the possibility, Knox County Schools Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles remains positive that the building of a new Knox County Area Technology Center will happen.

“I still believe this is best for our community, our kids,” said Sprinkles.

In the event the petition is validated by the county clerk’s office, Sprinkles said it is highly unlikely the school board will opt for a special election. The board will probably wait and add it onto next year’s election ballot.
