The Capital Improvement Sales Tax for the City of Joplin will continue for another ten years. 53% of voters in Jasper County and 60% of voters in Newton County approved the renewal of the tax. Mayor Mike Seibert gives News Talk KZRG his thoughts:
"The passage of Proposition A is just another positive statement by voters that Joplin is moving forward and preparing for future growth and development."
City officials said the 3/8th cent sales tax was necessary to maintain roads and fund new road projects.
