Voters extend capital improvements tax


Voters in Laclede County have approved the renewal of the City of Lebanon’s capital improvements sales tax, but have again rejected  the county’s use tax proposal.
According to unofficial results Tuesday night from the Laclede County Clerk’s Office, the city sales tax issue got nearly 64 percent approval with 2,968 yes votes and 1,673 no votes. The city uses money from this tax to pay for capital improvement and equipment needs.
Mayor Jared Carr thanked the community for passing the tax extension.
“This will continue to make Lebanon a great place to live for many years and knowing that the community continues to support itself to make it a great place to live makes me proud to have the privilege to serve as your Mayor,” Carr said in an email sent out Tuesday night.
“We will continue to pull ideas from the community to make this city a place that you can be proud of and will mold it’s services to what you as a community want to see and are proud to call yours,” he said.
