A 1-cent retail sales tax earmarked in part to be used to build a new law enforcement center will go before Kingman County voters on April 8.
Kingman County commissioners on Tuesday set the special election date for consideration of the tax, which is expected to raise about $910,000 annually for capital improvements and general property tax relief in the county and its seven incorporated towns.
The tax was proposed last week after commissioners opted to forgo bid-ready construction plans for a new law enforcement center amid cost concerns.
Last year, Kingman County residents voted down a pair of sales tax proposals to fund construction of an $11.8 million law enforcement center and 32-bed jail.
If approved, the latest proposed tax would go into effect as early as Oct. 1 and stretch over 20 years, according to Kingman County.
