Council eyes raising sales tax
Hartselle residents may soon receive a survey asking if they would support a 1-cent sales tax increase.
Hartselle's City Council has formulated a $29 million capital improvement plan. Officials originally pushed for a property tax increase to foot the bill, but apparently changed their minds after a public hearing on the topic.
A majority of those attending the meeting said they would not support a property tax increase.
If a majority of surveyed residents say they will support the increase, the matter could be put to a city-wide vote.
