Ozark Sales Tax Increase would help increase law enforcement pay and benefits and would also contribute to other city improvements.
Mayor Bob Bunting says the idea may be proposed to the city council in the fall. If approved, it would go into effect after the first of the year.
A group of merchants opposed to the idea are meeting this week to discuss the issue.
They're getting together at the Ozark-area chamber of commerce Thursday night at 7 pm.
The meeting is open to the public.
