The City of Fayetteville will hold a special election on August 10, 2021, on the question of a proposed extension of the current one percent local Sales and Use Tax within the City of Fayetteville from its current expiration date of June 20, 2023, to a new expiration date of June 30, 2033.
Note: Early Voting begins August 3 at the Washington County Courthouse.
The current 1% sales and use tax provides substantial funds to support the Fire Department, Police Department, Community Services Department, Parks and Recreation Department as well as all other General Governmental Departments and the Fayetteville Public Library.
The City's 1% sales and use tax generates approximately $22.5 million annually.
Of that $22.5 million, approximately $13.5 million goes to General Fund operations and approximately $9 million goes to the Sales Tax Capital fund.
