FARMINGTON — The San Juan County Commission will vote Tuesday at 4 p.m. whether to extend a tax on emergency communications and emergency medical services. 

The 0.1875 percent tax is paid on all taxable sales in the county. It was first implemented in 2003 and finances the county communications center that dispatches for local law enforcement and emergency response services.  

“The tax will expire on June 30, 2013,” said County Attorney Jim Durrett. “We’re starting through the process to keep that tax in place.”

San Juan County Commission meetings are held at the County Administration building at 100 South Oliver Dr. in Aztec.
