Roughly 70% of voters supported continuation of Santa Rosa County’s half cent sales tax for another five years.
County commissioners have been advocating for the tax’s continuation, pointing to completed projects including drainage improvements in south Santa Rosa, paved roads throughout the county, better equipped firefighters and more.
Commissioner Bob Cole said he is thankful for the confidence of the citizens.
“I’m really happy especially with the quality of the result. The overwhelming support shows the citizens really feel we have used that half cent appropriately,” he said.
