In 1993, voters approved the sales tax for new construction of a new sewer system.

City Administrator Brian Crane said the Nov. 6 vote would extend the capital improvements sales tax for another 20 years “so the city of Holts Summit can continue to make the necessary improvements to infrastructure from which all citizens will benefit.”

“While the original sales tax was used primarily for building and extending the sewer system, the renewal will help all aspects of the city’s infrastructure to be maintained properly,” Crane said.
