GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks residents have overwhelming approved a sales tax increase.

WDAZ-TV reports that unofficial results from Tuesday’s election show more than 5,000 people voted, and nearly three-fourths of them favored an increase.

The city sales tax will go from 1.75 percent to 2.25 percent. The additional money will help fund water and road projects.
