Stoddard Co. 911 sales tax issue to be added to April ballot

STODDARD COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Stoddard County Commission voted to add the 911 sales tax issue to the April ballot.

According to Stoddard County Clerk Joe Watson, it will be a 3/16 of a cent county-wide sales tax.

Watson said currently, 911 is funded by landline fees.

He said it's becoming a problem because people are getting rid of their landlines, which is cutting back funding.
