School Sales Tax Referendum Campaign Takes Off Unit Five is starting to make the case to raise sales taxes for all of McLean County. The district says it needs 120 million dollars and could get that through a one cent sales tax hike. That would create a revenue stream of about $16 million a year for all the school districts in the county. WGLT's Charlie Schlenker talks with Superintendent Gary Niehaus about growth, tax burdens, and shifting revenue from property tax to sales tax.
