Andover to Retire One-Cent Sales Tax Early
ANDOVER, Kan. - A one-cent sales tax increase to pay for Andover's new city hall is expiring 15 months early. The Wichita Business Journal reports that city officials say citywide tax will be retired on Oct. 1, well ahead of the Dec. 31, 2014, sunset that was originally planned.
Through August more than $4.6 million has been collected from the sales tax increase, which was enacted in 2010. The money was used to construct a new, 27,000-square-foot city hall building, which opened in January 2011.
