GREENVILLE — Residents of the City of Campbell have an opportunity starting next week to decide whether to use a portion of the sales tax revenue collected by the city to fix local streets.

A separate item on the ballot asks voters if they are in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in local stores.

Early voting for the May 11 elections begins Monday and continues through May 7, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays at the Hunt County Voter Administration Office, 2217A Washington Street in Greenville. Extended early voting for the election is scheduled 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on April 30 and May 2.

Proposition 1 on the City of Campbell election ballot calls for the reauthorization of the local sales and use tax in the City of Campbell at the rate of one-fourth percent to continue providing revenue for maintenance and repair of local streets.

Proposition 2 on the City of Campbell election ballot calls for the legal sale of all alcoholic beverages for off-premise consumption only.
