Warm Springs Road. In August, the Henderson Chamber of Commerce Issues Committee and the HCC Board of Directors voted to support the More Cops Tax initiative, the proposal to increase the sales tax by 0.05 percent effective Jan. 1. The Henderson Chamber believes that this initiative will raise approximately $14 million in annual revenue for the LVMPD, allowing it to hire an additional 133 officers.
