Gonzales Banking On Voter Approval Of Sales Tax Hike

City of Gonzales Seal WBRZ SG

When voters head to the polls in Gonzales this Saturday, town officials are hoping they'll approve a sales tax increase.

It's a proposed half-cent hike to take effect the first of the year and to continue indefinitely. The increase is expected to generate an additional $3.5 million a year.

The funds would be dedicated to fire and police protection, a new civic center and a community outreach center where youth activities will take place.
