Sutherlands Lumber Company may be coming to Raytown

Sutherlands Lumber Company may be coming to the old Wal-Mart building on Blue Ridge Blvd.  The Board of Aldermen passed an ordinance creating a CID (Community Improvement District) and authorizing a 1% sales tax for that district to pay for improvements and repairs to the site.

What does this mean tax wise? People shopping at Sutherlands will pay $0.01 more sales tax for each dollar of goods purchased. The increased business activity should result in more revenue to the City of Raytown and the Raytown School District.

WARNING !!! WHAT FOLLOWS IS EDITORIAL CONTENT

There are certain elements in our community that have conniptions and palpitations every time they hear or see the word TAX.  The solution is very simple, don’t shop there and you will not have to pay a single cent of this tax.

I love Raytown’s Smith Brothers Hardware, they are the best in the metro area for service and knowledge, but they do not carry lumber and many other building material items. They are a hardware store and not a lumber yard.  I will be happy to pay $0.01 more per dollar to avoid the time, gasoline expense of driving to Lowe’s. The fact that  sales tax will be going to Raytown and Raytown Schools instead of Lee’s Summit is an added bonus.

Thought for the day…

The squeaking wheel doesn’t always get the grease. Sometimes it gets replaced    😉
