Buchanan Vote

Buchanan county voters have rejected continuing a county-wide sales tax that last year brought in around 3 million dollars for economic development.

The issue was soundly defeated with 60% of the votes cast as "No". Commissioners were asking to extend the quarter cent tax to help expand business opportunities and for capital improvements in Buchanan county. The tax had been in place since 1987.
