In an unscheduled meeting on February 24th in the basement of the city building, the Pine Bluff City Council voted to hold an election on May 9th to raise and extend the tax that Go Forward Pine Bluff has been monopolizing for the last 7 years. The City Council vote barely passed, and the Mayor had to vote to suspend the rules to read each of the 4 motions, 3 times. Several people from the community spoke against Go Forward Pine Bluff, while a few with close ties to GFPB spoke for it.
This contentious issue was pulled from the well attended, regularly scheduled meeting that was held just 3 days prior.
