(KSL News) Weber and Davis County residents' votes will be the deciding factor on a sales-tax increase to fund transportation needs.

The Weber County Commission approved a resolution yesterday to place the proposition on the November ballot. The 0.25 cent sales-tax increase would generate just over $8.5 million a year.

A quarter of that amount would be used for buying land for future roads. The rest would go toward building new roads and transportation facilities.

The Davis County Commission voted to put a similar tax hike on their ballot earlier this month.
