Poinsett County sales tax meetings set

Harrisburg Chief on Sales Tax

POINSETT COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A series of town hall meetings will be held over the next couple of months to give people in Poinsett County an opportunity to learn more about a proposed one-cent countywide sales tax this fall.

The proposal, which heads to voters, will allow the proceeds of the tax to go toward the sheriff's office and detention center, with a key goal to update equipment for deputies.

A meeting was scheduled for Thursday night in Weiner.

Other meetings scheduled include:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 4, at 6 p.m. in Harrisburg, tentatively set for the Fine Arts Building at the school
  • Thursday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. in the Trumann Middle School Cafeteria,
