Pittsburg, Kansas, Sales Tax Up for Vote

  • Sep 24, 2015 | Gail Cole

 More sales tax revenue needed to fix potholes in Pittsburg.

Roads in Pittsburg, Kansas, are better than they were five years ago, but they could be better. To continue improvements, residents are today being asked to renew a quarter-cent sales tax for an additional five years.

Pittsburg already has the highest sales tax rate in Crawford County. Yet if voters reject the sales tax extension, the city will be able to do little more than fill potholes. If they approve it, the city expects to improve approximately 50 miles of roadway during the next five years.

Normal voting sites are open for this special ballot (Four States Home Page).
