KINGMAN, Kan The Kingman County Commission voted unanimously Monday to put a one-cent countywide sales tax to voters for their approval this spring.

If approved, the tax would be in effect for 20 years. Commissioners indicated the county’s share of revenue would be used to help fund construction of a new Law Enforcement Center but funds would not
be restricted to that use.

No firm election date was set but it was noted that meeting publication requirements would preclude having an election for at least 60 days. The election probably will be in late April.

The county estimates a one-cent, general sales tax would generate more than $900,000 annually.
