Stop the penny tax movement emerges

October 1, 2013

A movement has been announced to stop plans for Oconee County to add a penny to the sales tax to pay for public improvement projects. An anti-sales tax referendum meeting has been announced at 6:30 Thursday night, October 10 at 2036 Sandifer Boulevard. The meeting location, for those driving 123 from Seneca, is located on the right past the Schneider Electric plant. According to the announcement, “The public is invited to the first organizational meeting to plan on how to stop the penny sales tax referendum in Oconee County.” The meeting date is the same night that Oconee’s newly-formed Capital Project Sales Tax Commission will hold its first meeting. County leaders envision a public referendum in November 2014.
