On Tuesday the people of Jackson casts their votes. On the ballot: a one-percent sales tax increase that city leader says will go to fix jackson's water-infrastructure issues.
The purpose of the fund would be to help with street resurfacing and water and drainage improvements in the city of Jackson. Leaders with the State Department of Revenue estimated the 1% increase will raise $15 million annually for the city.
The tax would be on most retail purchases but does not include groceries, restaurants, or prescription drugs.
The polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
If the sales tax is approved city leaders say it would go into effect in March.
