Gretna To Vote On Sales Tax For Ballfields

From the Gretna Breeze

Voters in Gretna, NE will decide in November whether to approve a sales tax increase to fund construction of new ballfields at the city-owned Fields at Gretna complex.

The city has proposed a half-cent increase that would be used to build baseball and softball fields at the site on Capehart Road as well as make other improvements.

Developing the facility has been one of the city’s goals for some time and was given high priority in the city’s 2016 goal-setting plan.
