Opp Sales Tax

In Covington County, an 18 month, 1 cent sales tax is scheduled to expire at the start of the New Year and that has some residents concerned.

The revenue has been divided between Opp City, Andalusia City and Covington County School Districts.

Mayor HD Edgar says in Opp alone it has meant more than $300,000 for the classroom.

Mayor Edgar, along with school Superintendent Earl Weeks, are urging county commissioners to come up with a similar sales tax in 2007.
