Gosnell sales tax increase fails

GOSNELL, AR (KAIT) - The Gosnell sales tax increase did not pass in a special election Tuesday.

The money from the tax increase would have gone to the police and fire departments.

Police Chief Darrell Watkins was hoping it would pass because the officers do not have any retirement and they need funding.
