Rehobeth Vote on Tax

The City of Rehobeth may soon be taxing the City of Taylor to use its rights-of-way.

When Rehobeth became a city in 1996, they issued an ordinance that stated if a utility company used its rights of way, they'd charge a three percent tax.

This act, called the Franchise Act is commonly enforced around the Wiregrass.

Taylor currently runs a water pipe through Rehobeth.

Mayor Marty Collins says taxing Taylor is the only fair thing to do.

Taylor hasn't paid to use the right-of-way since Rehobeth's beginning, nine years ago.

The town council will vote on whether they'll enforce it, next Tuesday.
