Wahpeton to vote on new sales tax, recreation center
Wahpeton voters will decide if new locally-generated sales tax revenue will support a proposed recreation center. With a 6-2 vote Monday, Aug. 16, the Wahpeton City Council gave first reading of Ordinance No. 1030, approved ballot language and set a special election for Tuesday, Oct. 26. Voting against the motion were Councilman Jason Goltz, 2nd Ward, and Councilwoman at-large Renata Fobb. Budgeted at $20 million, the Wahpeton Recreation Center would be located in the Homestead Addition, a residential and commercial development to be located along the 210 Bypass.
