Harriman voters to decide sales tax question in November

A referendum asking Harriman voters if they want to increase the city’s Local Option Sales Tax from 9.5 to 9.75% will appear on the November ballot.

If Harriman voters were to approve a sales tax increase, it would increase from 9.75%, the maximum allowed by state law. Officials say that raising the city’s sales tax would generate an additional $400,000 a year in revenue, which would be used for infrastructure and road paving work.
