Funding for criminal justice to go on ballot

The Grays Harbor County Commissioners voted to add a proposition to the August ballot.

The commissioners voted Monday to place a Sales and Use Tax of 0.03% for criminal Justice Purposes on the upcoming ballot.

Commissioner Vickie Raines says the commissioners are ready to let the public decide on the issue and that not only the county but the cities as well were together on the need for the funds.

Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott says that he has heard nothing but support about the issue.

The funds from the tax if it is passed by the public would be used only for criminal justice purposes.
