Yuma County Jail Sales Tax Continuation (May 2011)
This measure was approved
- YES 8,038 (60.94%)
- NO 5,151 (39.06%)
This measure sought to continue the current sales tax which goes towards funding the county jail which is set at half a cent. Although it does not expire until 2015, county officials wanted to renew it early so there would not be a worry in a few years time. The tax was originally approved in 1995 and goes towards funding general operations and maintenance costs of the jail facilities.
