On Your Ballot: Ozark County Sales Tax

A half cent sales tax increase for the Ozark County Sheriff’s office is on the November ballot.

Sheriff Cass Martin says the money is needed to fix the county jail and hire more deputies. Martin says the jail has several leaks in the roof, holes in the walls, and broken windows.

Sheriff Martin also says the money is needed to get deputies back on patrols, which were cut last Summer.
