Former Greenwood Police Chief, Robert Hicks, casts his vote at City Hall during early voting last week. On August 9 Sebastian County EMS asked voters to go to the polls to approve a step up in funding for the medical service at a special election. Currently residents pay a yearly fee of $18 on their property taxes for EMS which has not increased since it was put into place 30 years ago in 1986. Check in with the Greenwood Democrat on Facebook to see the results of the election.
