Are you in favor of an 1/8 cent sales tax to restore the Brumley Swinging Bridges?


All Miller County voters will vote on a 1/8 cent sales tax to restore and reopen two historical swinging bridges and create an adjoining recreation area.

Besides restoring the bridges, the county commission hopes to build an area in Brumley that will attract residents and tourists to the Historic Brumley Swinging Bridges.

The tax has a four-year sunset clause and is expected to generate approximately $4 million over the life of the tax.

The 1/8 cent sales tax would be added to the overall statewide sales tax rate of 5.6 percent, not including any city or special district taxes.

The Missouri state sales tax rate is currently 4.225 percent, and the Miller County sales tax rate is 1.375 percent.

Plans call for restoring the bridges back to the maximum 15 ton vehicle limit.
