The County Law Enforcement Sales Tax proposition was on the November 3 ballot in Clay County.

The proposition enacted a one-eight of one percent tax on items purchased throughout the county for a period of twelve years. The money generated from the tax is used to support law enforcement personnel, maintain facilities and help with operational costs.[1] This tax would essentially renew a tax that is already in place but expires in 2010. The tax had been used to help fund the county detention center and paid for staff so renewal of this tax is seen as essential to the general safety of the county. There has been no outspoken opposition to the tax, most citizens know the need for continued law enforcement.[2]
