Voters in Greenwood overwhelmingly approved a tax increase Tuesday night to pay for a new police station.

The quarter-cent sales tax is slated to build a new facility for the Greenwood Police Department at the site of the Old Post Office building near the center of town.

Voters passed the measure 213 (74 percent) to 74 (26 percent), according to results released Tuesday night by Sebastian County officials.

The new facility will give the police department 10,000 square feet of space.

    They should build it near Hwy 71 adjacent to their speed trap……

    Most of my neighbors did not even know about the election! Many are still without power. 287 people voted!!! Don’t you have to have a certain amount of the population to validate an honest vote???
