Fate of payroll tax uncertain

If there are members of the Liberty public who are in favor of the 1 percent payroll tax, they weren’t at a public hearing Monday night.

The only comments suggesting the tax would be a solution to the city’s financial shortfall came from those working for the city, as the standing room only crowd was unanimously against it.
