Catawba County wants Local Option Sales Tax

Catawba Board of Commissioners Legislative agenda:

Introducing legislation that would ask the General Assembly to consider a one cent sales tax increase. This one cent sales tax would yield about $13 million for Catawba County revenue and it would avoid ten and one-half cents on the tax rate. Significant revenue will be needed for jail construction debt and operational costs, school construction and additional funds for teacher supplements.

Hmmn, sounds familiar.....jail construction; schools; etc. possible 9 cent tax increase in Guilford County. Our Board has their retreat this Friday at 12:30 pm at the Elon Law School in Greensboro.
