ELECTION ISSUE – ONE CENT SALES TAX SPLIT
As part of this year’s General Election, Siloam Springs residents will be asked to vote on Ordinance 22-15. This ordinance asks the voters to continue the current split of the City’s permanent one-cent city sales tax. The current split is 40% streets, 20% police, 20% fire, and 20% city general fund.

If the Ordinance fails, then the split will revert back to 80% streets and 20% city general fund creating an approximate $2,000,000 gap in annual funding for the City’s police and fire departments.

A vote for or against Ordinance 22-15 will not change the City’s sales tax rate. It will only change how the revenue received from the one-cent sales tax is allocated within the City’s budget.
