Sales Tax Renewal Slated for November 3, 2015 Ballot

 

The .5% permissive sales tax will be up for renewal in November. The .5% sales tax has been in place for going on twenty years, first being passed in 1996 and renewed in 2006. The subject of recent public hearings, the said renewal is for a period of 10 years on purchases made within the County.  All revenue generated from this sales tax will be used in the County’s General Revenue Fund. The General Revenue Fund includes the funding for the Sheriff’s office and the Court system. Historically the .5% sales tax has generated approximately $2.5 million per year.   The Board of County Commissioners will be holding informational sessions during the next few months on the issue. You are encouraged to attend and bring forth any questions you may have. Included below, for your review and consideration, is a copy of the presentation used at past hearings regarding the sales tax renewal. If you have any questions in regards to this sales tax renewal, please contact the Commissioners’ Office at 419-739-6710.
