Voters Say No to 1/4-Cent Law Enforcement Sales Tax

The future of the Scotland County Extension program remains up in the air after voters refused to back a ľ-cent law enforcement sales tax that was expected to generate approximately $100,000 for the county.

If the levy was approved, the county commission had pledged to return the extension council funding to its previous level of roughly $20,000 annually, after that budget item had been cut to the state mandated minimum of $5,000 in last yearís budget crunch.

The ballot issue failed by a vote of 1119 against to 938 in favor.

Currently Scotland County has a sales tax of 5.475%, with the sales tax in the City of Memphis and the City of Rutledge at 6.475%.

If approved, the sales tax would have increased to 5.725% in the county and 6.725% in Memphis and Rutledge.

That compares to a sales tax rate of 6.225% in Knox County, 6.35% in Lewis County, 5.725% in Clark County, 5.725% in Schuyler County and 5.350% in Adair County. City sales tax rates in neighboring towns are 6.725% in Kahoka, 7.225% in Edina, 8.225% in Queen City, 7.6% in Kirksville and 7.725% in Canton.
