In November, Wakulla County Voters will be asked to extend the 1 cent county sales tax which has been in existence since 1987. The issue is more important than it might initially sound. Why? Well a couple of reasons: it goes only to capital improvement projects such as fire truck purchases, bridge repairs, park renovation and much more. Since 2003 the tax has brought 21 million dollars into the county. If the one cent sales tax, which everyone who purchases a taxable item in Wakulla County pays, is voted out then projects may not be approved, equipment may not be purchased and recreational opportunities may not be available unless funded through other sources. On the other hand voters will not be required to pay a penny on every taxable dollar they spend in the County.
To help voters work their way through this important issue, the Wakulla Republican Women’s Club is sponsoring an evening with David Edwards, the Wakulla County Administrator. He will be explaining the tax, its history, what it has been funded in the past, what it will be used for in the future if extended, and how it will affect the county if it is not extended.
Please stop in for a few minutes and hear what David Edwards has to say. You will get your penny’s worth. republican-chamber-flyer
