Mar 09, 2013 12:02 am
Nathan Mayberg reports in the Register Star the Columbia County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on a proposed mobile phone tax, Wed., Mar. 13. According to county officials, a plan to tax all county property owners 30 cents per month is under consideration, but details are still unknown. The funds will support the operations of Columbia County 911. The current plan represents a compromise reached after some supervisors objected to taxing every owner of a mobile device countywide. It is unclear if the supervisors will vote on the legislation Wednesday or wait until April. Read the full story in the Register Star.
