Voters Pass Tax in Poplar Bluff

April 5, 2005-- Posted at 10:53 p.m. CDT

Poplar Bluff-- Voters in Poplar Bluff went to the polls today in a special election. They voted on a proposed half cent sales tax to widen nearly 50 miles of Highway 67 North. Supporters said it would be at least 20 years before the Missouri Department of Transportation would have sufficient funding for the project, but opponents argued there are more important matters to spend the money on.

  The measure overwhelmingly passed.  The final results are 1787 voting yes, 827 voting no.
