Pulaski Tech millage vote fails

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - The special election held Tuesday to provide more money to Pulaski Technical College failed with 75 percent of voters disapproving of the measure.

The ballot question asked voters to establish a "technical college district" for taxing purposes to provide funds to PTC.  If approved, the taxing district would have authorized a tax levy not to exceed 1.9 mills.  The money would have gone toward school infrastructure, including technology upgrades and building renovations.  For a household worth $100,000 the tax would have cost $38 extra a year.  

With 100 percent of votes counted in the election, 10,236 voters opposed the new tax in comparison to 3,468 voters approving the measure.
