County school officials asked the commission last week to implement a one-cent sales tax increase or at least schedule a referendum in August to let voters decide the issue.

He also recommended that the commission loan the county school system $240,000 over the next few months.
However, County School Superintendent Kenneth Lord asked commissioners to delay action until the school board meets to discuss the loan.
