Voters in the tri-county area will have several ballot issues to consider when they go to the polls April 6 for the General Municipal Election.

These are as follows:

Camden County

Village of Sunrise Beach

Voters will be asked if Sunrise Beach should be authorized to forgo annual elections if the number of candidates who have filed for a particular office is equal to the number of positions to be filled in the election.

Miller County

Voters will be asked to impose a countywide sales tax of 3/8 of a cent (three-eighths) to be used for law enforcement services for the county. This would include law enforcement operating expenses and capital improvement projects for law enforcement facilities. The tax would sunset in 20 years.

In Lake Ozark, voters will have two issues to consider.

One is if the term for the mayor should be extended to four years from the current two years. If approved, the change would not become effective until after next year’s regular municipal election in April 2022. The change does not affect the current race for mayor.

The other is if terms of the board of aldermen should be extended to four years from the current two years. If approved, the change would not take effect until after next year’s regular municipal election in April 2022. The change would not affect the current contests for board of aldermen.

In Iberia, voters will be asked to approve a 1 cent citywide sales tax to improve public safety.

Morgan County

Village of Sunrise Beach voters will be asked to authorize the village to forgo annual elections if the number of candidates who have filed for a particular office is equal to the number of positions in the office to be filled.
