Montesano, WA – A proposition for a sales tax increase to support E-911 will go to voters on the November ballot. 

The Grays Harbor County Commissioners approved a resolution at their meeting Tuesday that will give voters the decision on a one tenth of 1% sales tax increase that would fund emergency communication systems and facilities as requested by the Grays Harbor E-911 Board.

Commissioner Vickie Raines says that if the measure passed in November, the funds would be required to be used on infrastructure only.

She says the E-911 equipment needs upgrades to keep first responders safe.

The commissioners voted unanimously to place the proposition on the November 5th ballot for voters to decide.
