Kennett sales tax to help senior citizens passes

KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - Election Day ended with a victory for senior citizens in one Region 8 town.

The one-eighth sales tax increase for Kennett Oaks Nutrition Center seniors and area wide seniors was approved on Tuesday, officials said.

It will benefit the Oaks Senior Program as they plan on moving into a newer facility.

They will then be able to enjoy a safe place to go, a bigger place to socialize, and have more activities participate in.
