Commissioners choose not to put sales tax increase referendum on fall ballot

A sales tax increase won’t go to a vote again in 2014.

Brunswick County commissioners saw too many hurdles to overcome to put the quarter-cent sales tax increase referendum back on the ballot in November.

The board members made the decision at the July 21 county meeting.

They didn’t vote on the decision, but came to a consensus while deciding how to respond to a request for a second referendum by a number of town mayors.
