Yakima County Jail Security Upgrades
The Yakima County Commissioners want to keep the community safe and they want you to fund a new security system at the Yakima County jail. The commissioners on Tuesday decided to ask voters in the august primary to approve a one tenth of a cent sales tax increase, the tax would raise 2.8 million dollars a year. Enough to cover the security upgrades. If approved it would mean you'd be paying 8 cents on a 1 dollar purchase.
