The Votes Are In!

Last week, the City of Killdeer held a Special Election which would involve the community’s sought-after opinion on whether or not there would be a .5% sales tax increase within the Killdeer City Limits to reaise funding for the High Plains Cultural Center which resides on the Southwest side of town.

Since its completion in 2015, the HPCC has housed numerous events such as weddings, baby showers, cook offs and even events held for the Dunn County Fair. It is truly a landmark for the city, and for Dunn County as a whole.

The Special Election, which was held Tuesday July 25, would determine whether this structure would recieve the proceeds of the .5% sales tax increase, which would commence on January 1, 2018 and continue through January 1, 2025.

Commissioner Candrian moved to accept the results of the election, which ended up being 87 NO votes to 77 YES votes, seconded by Commissioner Spethman.

A very close election indeed; “no further actions will be asked from the citizens of Killdeer at this time” stated Dawn Muscha, Deputy Auditor, during a phone call Tuesday evening.
