MCCOOK, Neb. (AP) - McCook city officials will be asked to wait until next year to schedule a vote on whether to continue a 1.5 percent sales tax.

The McCook Daily Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1mzUtZD ) that the city’s sales-tax ballot language committee wants more time to refine its ballot question and educate the public about how the revenue would be used.

Committee members will recommend that the McCook City Council wait until May 2015 and schedule a special election. The city’s 1 percent local option sales tax and a separate half-percent sales tax are both set to expire in 2018.

If the ballot issue is defeated in May, city officials are required to wait 23 months before bringing it back to a public vote.
