Perry County voters approved by a nearly 60 percent margin Tuesday the extension of a tax to fund infrastructure repairs. The question was whether to extend the existing three-eighths-cent sales tax that was set to expire March 3, 2017, 20 years after it passed originally. It will remain in effect for the next 20 years.
Perryville voters also selected Wayne Keller for municipal judge, defeating Zachary Rozier. Keller won by 120 votes. Mary Bauwens and Richard Dix were elected to serve on the Perry County School Board.
