Voters in Prescott approved a measure that will raise the city’s sales-tax rate to help pay down the city’s $78 million pension debt.

The vote will raise residents’ sales tax by three-quarters of a percent and pay for pension benefits for police officers and firefighters.

I just got a hold of Michael Lamar, city manager in Prescott, and he said he’s incredibly happy the measure passed.
