Craighead County Voters to Decide Fate of Proposed Lake at Bono

JONESBORO, AR - Voters in Craighead County are going to have the opportunity to vote on whether or not to approve a tax hike that will fund the proposed Bono Lake project.

At last night's Quorum Court meeting, Craighead County justices voted unanimously in favor of putting a one percent sales tax hike on the ballot for a special election, which is set for June 12.

If approved, the increase would last for three months and be used to fund a proposed watershed/recreational lake in the hills west of Bono.
