The Greater Bentonville Chamber of Commerce is backing an effort to pass a bond extension in April.
During a special election, local voters will consider nine ballot questions. These questions will address street improvement, park and recreation improvements, public library improvements, a public safety radio communication system, a fire training facility, a police training facility, drainage improvements, refunding bonds, and a sales and use tax extension.
The bond extension will enable the city to make infrastructure improvements without a tax increasing, use funding a one-cent sales tax that was previously approved by voters in 2003 and 2007.
“Bentonville has a dynamic and diverse economy and an extraordinary quality of life. It’s easy to see why we are one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Continuing this investment serves our small businesses and preserves the quality of life we all love for future generations to enjoy,” Bill Akins, 2021 Chairman of the Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement.
Voters can vote early starting April 6 with election day on April 13.
