On April 4, a one-cent sales tax proposal is on the
ballot in Effingham County. The revenue from this sales tax,
if passed, can only be used to improve school facilities or
retire new or existing building bonds. Our Board of Education
voted to place this proposal on the ballot because it will
provide a reliable source of revenue to keep our schools
up-to-date and, at the same time, provide property tax relief
to our residents.
