On second thought, the southwest Iowa town of Greenfield –will– have a local option sales tax. Voters in Greenfield decided to join the rest of Adair County in implementing a one-percent tax that will benefit city governments. Four and a half months ago in late November, the same measure was defeated. Tuesday, 19-percent of registered voters turned out to accept the tax voting 195 yes to 111 no. Tax supporters say they did a poor job of explaining why the tax was needed before the original vote. County-wide, the tax is now estimated to be worth 450-thousand dollars annually; without Greenfield, the value of the tax was only 280-thousand dollars.
