Jail Sales Tax Hike Put On Hold

8-7-06 Voters in Bryan County will not be asked to approve a sales tax increase, at least for the time being.

Monday afternoon, the jail trust authority tabled the sales tax discussion until two new county commissioners take office next year.

The authority has been working on a plan to raise money for the county and the jail.

In a four-to-one vote, the authority agreed they would not ask county officials to put a sales tax question on the ballot.
