CONWAY — Conway voters on Tuesday approved a temporary sales-tax increase to help finance street repairs and improvements.
The complete but unofficial vote totals, according to the Faulkner County Election Commission:
The 0.375 percentage-point increase will raise the city’s total sales tax rate to 9.125 percent and is expected to generate an additional $5.1 million annually. It will expire March 31, 2023. The only way the new tax can continue after that date would be if voters approve an extension.
