MIDFIELD, AL (WBRC) -

If Midfield voters pass a tax referendum next week, more police officers and improved fire service will be on the way for the city.

Voters will head to the polls in a special election on Tuesday to decide whether to pass a 1.4 mil property tax increase.

For a $74,000 home, that would mean about $104 dollars a year for a homeowner.

The mayor says the last time there was a property tax increase in the city was in 1970.

The money from the increase will cover of the costs of pay raises for city employees. It'll also pay for more police officers and a new truck for the fire department. The mayor says the city's fire trucks are about 20 years old.

Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
