Harriman officials hope residents who want to see infrastructure improvements will support a proposed .25 percent sales tax increase.
A sales tax referendum on the ballot for Nov. 4, proposes raising the city’s local sales tax from 2.5 percent to 2.75 percent. The increase would bring the total city and state sales tax rate to 9.75 percent.
“We think that would generate about $458,000 a year. All that would be set aside for infrastructure improvements,” said city manager Kevin Helms.
