CARLISLE, Iowa (AP) - Voters in south-central Iowa will decide next week whether to approve a local city sales tax increase of 1 percent.

Des Moines television station KCCI reports (https://bit.ly/1WQIFFd ) that the vote on Carlisle’s proposed sales tax increase will be held Tuesday.

Carlisle city officials say the increase would give the city new funds it needs to improve.

City Administrator Andrew Lent says the city is not able to keep up with expenses, and the increase would help.

The sales tax in Warren County is 6 percent - or 6 cents for every dollar spent. The referendum calls for an increase by 1 percent, which would bring the total sales tax to 7 cents per dollar.
