Dothan shoppers will soon pay more at the register. The city passed a one cent sales tax increase during the commission meeting on Tuesday.
But is that going to start a wave of other cities increasing its sales taxes?
The mayors from Abbeville and Ozark and both men say they do not plan on proposing any sales tax increase anytime soon. But one of those cities leaders say they may think about that option next spring.
Abbeville city leaders say they could use the extra money, but they don't plan on raising the city's sales tax.
While Abbeville says it doesn't need to be like Dothan and raise their sales tax, Ozark leaders say that might be an option come the spring.
