Murray approves "Nickel Tax" ballot


Murray voters will get to decide in November if they want a new tax to help pay for city parks. Murray has the necessary number of validated voter signatures to authorize a parks referendum to appear on the November ballot. The clerk's office determined that 3,189 submitted signatures were valid. If approved, $50 of park funding tax would be generated for every $100,000 of property value.
