Some residents say they want to beautify the gateways of Leon County. Thursday night county leaders opened the floor to the public to find out how they would like to spend a one cent infrastructure sales tax.
Representatives with Gateway Tallahassee say North Monroe Street is one of those gateways that needs renovation. They say it's not the only area that needs TLC but it is a starting point.
They feel when people enter the county, they should see more than gas stations and bare medians.
Vince Long, the county administrator says, "It's important because there is an understand that we may not know of all the projects that are out there potentially to be funded."
Other ideas out of tonight's public meeting included the Tennessee Street bus and bike lane project as well as improvements to waste water treatment of Oak Ridge and Woodville sewers. An extension for the one cent tax will be up to voters in November.
