NORTHPORT CITY COUNCIL TO VOTE ON SALES TAX INCREASE AUG. 5
The Northport City Council will vote on a one-cent sales tax increase on Aug. 5.
A week ago, residents got the chance to <a href=”https://wvua23.com/northport-residents-respond-to-proposed-sales-tax/”>respond to the proposal</a>. Northport City Council president Jay Logan said if there is an increase, he wants to see the money go toward the city’s debt, as well as its first responders and schools.
“If the possibility, if the council does decide to do it, we want to have a definite plan that maybe have some cornerstones such as being physically responsible for the debt management reduction plan, first responder education public safety, so the approach may be totally different between the two cities,” Logan said, comparing Northport’s plans to Tuscaloosa, <a href=”https://wvua23.com/council-approves-elevate-tuscaloosa-sales-tax-increase-other-projects-to-be-determined/”>which also saw a sales tax increase this year.</a>
