The Liberal City Commission met Tuesday night for their regularly scheduled meeting. On the agenda was the USD 480 School Board with a proposal to allow the citizens of Liberal the opportunity to vote on a half cent sales tax for the financing of a future school project. The commission voted in favor of pursuing putting the question on a ballot.
