Unofficial results of the September 12 Hamburg Special Election

Issue #1 – City Park
For 117
Against 57

Issue #2 – Fire Department
For 131
Against 43

Hamburg residents considered two separate tax increases, each one a half-cent, in a special sales tax election.

One of the half-cent tax hikes would provide funding for bonds to pay for the construction of a new fire station and adjacent ambulance station on Main Street.

The other half-cent tax increase would fund bonds to pay for improvements at Norman Park.

The taxes will sunset when the bonds are paid off.
