Burlington City Council unanimously approves tax to fund public transportation
BURLINGTON, N.C. — For years Burlington has been the biggest city in North Carolina with no public transit system of its own.
Now that’s a title the city no longer holds.
Tuesday, the Burlington City Council voted unanimously on a funding mechanism for a public bus line.
Each Burlington resident will be taxed $5 per year for each car he or she owns.
The tax will be effective July 1.
