Humboldt Council members gave 7-0 support (Councilwoman Sarah Lassman was absent) to a Nov. 5 referendum for a half-cent sales tax to support street improvements throughout town.
If passed, the increase would bump Humboldt local sales tax to 1.75 percent and make its overall tax 9.5 percent. A simple majority will decide the issue.
If successful, the 10-year tax increase would be added to retail purchases and services beginning April 1, 2020.
