Callaway County Sales Tax Increase On November Ballot

Voters in Callaway County will be asked to approve two sales increases to fund law enforcement on the November ballot.

Proposition 1 would increase the countywide sales tax by a half-cent.

Money would be used for the county to hire new deputies and investigators and increasing pay.

Proposition 2 is another half cent tax that would go to building a new Justice Center, and fund work to turn the courthouse into a County Government Center.

The current sales tax rate in Callaway County is 5.725 percent.
