Bella Vista Voters Approve Sales Tax

Voters in Bella Vista last Tuesday approved a one-cent sales tax measure which will finance upgrading the public safety services in that city.

Unofficial results of the vote showed 2,197 votes for the measure and 1,434 against. There are 19,326 registered voters in Bella Vista.

It is estimated the tax will generate between $600,000 and $800,000 annually with the first $750,000 dedicated to the fire/EMT and police departments.

The Arkansas Department of Revenue will determine when collection of the tax takes effect, which is normally at the start of the next quarterly reporting date.
