An online poll in McCall indicates that residents are almost evenly split on a proposal to raise the city's sales tax by 1 percent.

This week's edition of the McCall Star-News reports that the poll, conducted in December, came in the wake of a November ballot initiative to raise the sales tax that failed by only seven votes. But the poll came closer to a 50-50 split, reports the Star-News.

The poll also allowed citizens to comment anonymously, and a good many in favor of increasing the sales tax pointed to McCall's deteriorating infrastructure, which, they said, needs immediate attention. 

Others, meanwhile, questioned the fairness of the proposed tax hike.

“I will gladly support the initiative when groceries are made exempt from the tax,” wrote one commenter.

McCall Mayor Jackie Aymon said she is in favor of putting the measure back in front of voters this November.
