LYNDEN, Wash. -- Voters in Lynden will be asked to decide whether or not to raise taxes for roads in November. The City's new Transportation Benefit District Board on Monday approved a ballot measure that would raise the sales tax by two tenths of a percent. Lynden Mayor Scott Korthuis says the money would pay for badly needed road improvements. The money would pay for road rebuilding and repaving, as well as pedestrian trails and bridges. If approved by voters, the sales tax in Lynden would be on par with Bellingham and Ferndale at about 8.7 percent. The plan would generate about $300,000 a year for the next 10 years, and add an extra 20 cents on a $100 purchase at Lynden stores.
