FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- Happening this week in Fayetteville, voters are being asked to weigh in on a proposal to use hotel and restaurant tax money for a Walton Arts Center expansion. In November, Fayetteville voters will have the option to help pay for the WAC renovations and kick off construction for a regional park. But the city wants voters to know that it won't cost them any money. Beth Bobbitt with the Walton Arts Center says there's already a hotel motel retail tax that funds older projects. But that tax is set to end soon.

"It's important for people to know that this is not a new tax," says Bobbitt."This is simply refinancing bonds and using the existing HMR tax to pay off the debt."

The city is asking voters to continue the tax for 25 years to fund WAC renovations and a regional park project. Tuesday night was the first of two public meetings on the topic. The second meeting is Wednesday at noon at the Walton Arts Center.
