Voters Tuesday to decide special questions

(KNZA)--Voters on Tuesday will determine city and school board races, while some will decide special questions.

In Marshall County, voters will decide the fate of a half-cent sales tax proposal to help fund the construction of a new 30-bed jail. The new jail is to be built on county-owned property on 11th Terrance, in Marysville.

Voters in two Marshall County towns--Blue Rapids and Waterville--will decide whether to approve a half-cent sales tax to fund general governmental services.

In Doniphan County, voters in the city of Troy will decide if a one percent retailers sales tax should be levied to provide an adequate level of public services within the city, maintain and improve the city's infrastructure and minimize property tax increases. It would eliminate the existing one percent sales tax and would take effect January 1, 2024.

Also voters in eight Doniphan County townships will decide the fate of tax levies to fund road improvements.

In addition, voters in Holton USD 336 will decide whether to change to the at-large method of electing board members instead of from member districts.

The polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 pm.
