DALLAS — Little Rock voters will be asked in September to approve an increase in the sales tax to generate $511 million over eight years under a plan outlined to city’s Board of Directors on Tuesday by Mayor Mark Stodola.

The increase includes an eight-year 0.5% tax to fund $204 million of capital projects, and a permanent 0.75% tax to generate $307 million for operating expenses over the same period.
