Voters to decide 1/2% sale tax hike
Humphrey is about to find out if residents are willing to help finance a new swimming pool.
A 1/2 percent sales tax increase is proposed on the Nov. 3 General Election ballot, with proceeds earmarked for the construction of a new pool.
The city has about $500,000 set aside for a new pool, but needs the sales tax to help finance it. It also could seek grants and will establish a capital campaign to raise funds locally.
