Craighead County justices discuss allocations of sales tax

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Members of the Craighead County Quorum Court Road Committee are set to discuss the allocation of money collected from a one-cent sales tax tonight.

Tony Thomas, assistant to County Judge Ed Hill, says right now, the court allocates 60-cents for each dollar collected to the road department, with the remaining 40-cents going to the general fund.

Thomas says the court is discussing an adjustment of the percentages to put more money into the general fund.

Thomas anticipates the entire court to discuss the issue next Monday night.
