Polls open until 7 p.m. for sales tax question

5/14/2013

Polls opened this morning for a special election for Ellis County voters to consider a 0.5-percent county sales tax. The polls will remain open until 7 p.m.

The county sales tax would go toward construction of an EMS/rural fire building as well as expansion and renovation of the county jail, Law Enforcement Center and courthouse.

The $14.3 million project would sunset after five years, or when it is paid off, whichever comes sooner.
