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.
