Greene County voters Tuesday turned down a use tax for the county. 56 percent of those who went to the polls said no to Proposition A.
The Greene County Commission said in a release Tuesday night that with the measure’s defeat, departments which have already made several cuts the past few years will need to cut an additional 10 percent from their budget. A review of which services to scale back will take place in the coming days.
In Christian County, voters overwhelmingly voted down Proposition A, which would have imposed a use tax in their county. 79.6 percent of those who turned out at the polls Tuesday said no to the ballot issue.
And in Webster County, a majority of voters also said no to a proposed use tax.
58 percent of Taney County voters said no to a tax that would have upgraded the county’s 911 emergency dispatch center.
