Use of public safety tax for new fire stations approved by voters

With just 336 voters casting a ballot, the city as been authorized to use funds from a 3/8 tax passed in 2006 for public safety to build two new first stations in Bryant.

The final tally was 238 “For” (71 percent) and 98 “Against”, according to the Saline County Clerk’s office.

The original tax was to pay for 24-hour staffing of the current fire stations. With the stations housing the fire trucks, mobile homes have been used to house the firefighters.
