CLAY CENTER, Kan. (AP) _ Clay Center voters have again approved a new tax to build a swimming pool to replace one built in 1937.
A special election that ended Tuesday passed 549-251. The Clay County Clerk's office says 27 percent of eligible voters participated.
Voters had approved a 0.5 percent sales tax Oct. 1 to raise between $30,000 to $35,000 a month to help fund a $7.2 million pool.
The vote raised Clay Center's sales tax rate to 9.15 percent on Jan. 1.
The Salina Journal reports a group opposed to the city carrying the debt collected petitions last fall to force a special election. Voters were asked whether a public building commission should issue revenue bonds to finance construction and debt service for the new pool.
