NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (KNWA) — What you see on the ballot depends on where you live but aside from voting for federal and state offices — some people will also be deciding on measures such as sales taxes.
In Decatur, voters will have the chance to approve a 1% liquor tax from alcohol sales.
Further north in Bella Vista, people will choose whether they’re for or against bonds that would pay for the cost of three public safety projects along with a 1% sales tax increase that’ll pay back those bonds.
Voters will vote on a proposed quarter-cent sales tax that would pay for a new emergency communications system.
In Winslow, a 2% tax will be on the ballot. If passed, those funds would go toward projects and maintenance for restoring areas that had flood damage.
