The Hazelwood City Council last week approved two referendums for placing two revenue generating measures before voters on the Aug, 5th ballot.
At its meeting earlier this month, the council gave a first reading to a bill that calls for a one-fourth-cent increase in the city’s sales tax, which is now 8.613 percent.
