NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  The Davidson County Election Commission decides today whether to include competing tax policy charter amendments on the December ballot.

The commission meets at 2:30 p.m. and will be taking public comment.

The proposed charter amendment that would repeal the recently approved 32 percent Metro tax increase will be considered first. The amendment would and limit the city council’s ability to raise taxes in the future.

The commission will then consider a second referendum that essentially asks Nashville voters to leave current city tax policy unchanged.

Whatver the commission decides, expect the tax issue to ultimately be decided in the courts.
