KINGMAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kingman County voters were deciding in a special election whether to approve a new sales tax and the extension of an existing one to pay for a new law enforcement center and county jail.

If approved Tuesday, the taxes which would pay for an $11.8 million facility in Kingman to replace the current law enforcement center that was built in 1959. The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/16HCHRX) reports voters are being asked to approve a new one-quarter-cent sales tax and extend an existing three-quarter-cent sales tax.

The new tax would go into effect July 1 of next year and continue for 20 years, while the existing tax -- which was approved in 2010 for road and bridge projects -- would be extended for an additional 20 years starting in 2021.
