BELLEVILLE, IL. (KPLR) - A sales tax increase of .25% will be the discussion at a Belleville public meeting tonight.

You can give your opinion at a public meeting at 7:00 pm at the City Council chambers.

The tax increase replaced the unpopular wheel tax, which required car owners to pay 20 dollars per vehicle.

The temporary sales tax increase that replaced it expires at the end of this year.
