When will the arena sales tax go away?

How many more days will you have to pay the 1 percent tax to help pay for the downtown arena?

Ask Sedgwick County Manager Bill Buchanan and he'll be able to tell you.

Buchanan is keeping a running daily tally of how many days are left -- 344 as of today -- and letting commissioners, county staff and the media know almost every day.

"I just figure it's a good thing to do," he told The Hall Monitor at today's commission meeting.

County staff have taken to rolling their eyes, giggling and groaning when Buchanan does his daily update, but it's only begun for Buchanan: he's got 343 more reminders until the tax ends.
