The City of Tontitown will hold a Special Sales Tax Election on July 11, 2017. In 2016, Tontitown entered a new Water Service Agreement (“Agreement”) with the Springdale Water Utilities. This Agreement is for a term of 5 years and concludes in the year 2021. Springdale has provided Tontitown with water service since 1971. Tontitown appreciates and values our long relationship with Springdale, however there is no guarantee that Springdale will be able to provide Tontitown with water service after the expiration of this current agreement. In negotiating the current Water Service Agreement, it was made clear to Tontitown that our city should be exploring future water service possibilities, as Springdale may not be able to provide us with the amount of water that our city will need in the future.
