MOORESVILLE – Town residents will have the opportunity to vote on a quarter-cent sales tax increase for Iredell County on the Nov. 6 ballot.

The aim is for 75 percent of the funds generated from the increase, estimated at $6.6 million annually, to be shared between three school systems in Iredell County: Mooresville Graded School District, Iredell-Statesville Schools and Mitchell Community College.

MGSD will be holding four informational meetings for parents and community members to present how the district will plan on using the funds if the referendum passes. The first was held Sept. 20.

Everyone, regardless if they have a student at the school, is invited to attend. All meetings start at 6:30 p.m.

• Sept. 24, Mooresville Middle School, 233 Kistler Farm Road

• Oct. 4, Mooresville Intermediate School, 1438 Coddle Creek Hwy., aimed for those affiliated with Mooresville Intermediate, Rocky River Elementary School and South Elementary
