LEAVENWORTH — Voters in the tourist-friendly Bavarian Village are being asked to approve a 0.1 percent sales tax, with the money set aside to pay the rising costs of sheriff’s protection.

The tax — “one cent on every $10 sale,” as Leavenworth City Administrator Joel Walinski puts it — would raise an estimated $110,00 per year if passed in the Nov. 5 general election, offsetting major increases in contracted patrol services from the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office.
