Grandview Voters to Decide Public Safety Sales Tax
Grandview residents will have an important decision to make this spring. On Tuesday, January 9, the Grandview Board of Aldermen voted unanimously to place a ½-cent Public Safety Sales Tax on the April 3 ballot.
“The safety of our citizens, visitors and our public safety staff is always a first priority for the City,” said Mayor Leonard Jones. “This ½-cent will help protect everyone as Grandview continues to be one of the fastest-growing cities in Jackson County.”
If approved, the Public Safety Sales Tax is expected to raise an additional $1-$1.3 million in annual revenue. The funds could only be spent on Grandview Police and Fire Departments. Over the next few weeks, The City, Mayor and Board of Alderman will be finalizing a plan for how the money could be spent if approved.
