The Augusta Commission has approved a resolution for a special election to let citizens decide on a sales tax that could fund construction of the new James Brown Arena Complex.

The election will be held on November 7, 2023, putting it in the citizen’s hands to vote “yes” or “no” on the 1/2% sales tax.
