FIRESTONE — Voters in each of Firestone’s precincts had a clear message in response to a proposed temporary increase to sales tax: take a hike.
The 1 percent increase aimed at funding the town’s planned improvements for street and parks, received 45.78 percent (2,314 votes).
The town didn’t sway the 2,741 residents who voted no, despite exclusions for grocery purchases and projections that 70 cents on the dollar would come from customers outside of Firestone.
