Use tax to be on April ballots
By Dave Moeller, Louisiana Press-Journal
Pike County voters will be asked to approve a use tax when they go to the polls on Tuesday, April 2.
The county sales tax on out-of-state purchases was suspended last year when a Missouri Supreme Court Judge found it to be unconstitutional.
The use tax would reinstate that revenue.
That will bring back about $50,000 per year in revenue used for road and bridge projects, according to Presiding County Commissioner Danny Miller.
