Wayne County, NC – During their recent meetings, the Town of Seven Springs Town Council and the Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation District Board both approved resolutions of support for the quarter-cent sales tax. Commissioners and County management have joined together with leaders of the Wayne County Public School System to bring the facts about the sales tax referendum to local civic and government groups.
County Manager Craig Honeycutt said, “We appreciate the support from these two boards and hope that voters across Wayne County will visit the polls and participate in the March 3rd primary.”
If passed by voters on March 3, this sales tax referendum will allow Wayne County to begin work on $32 million in public school facility improvements. To help citizens become more informed, the school district has launched an Informational Website (www.waynecountyschools.org/salestax.aspx) which includes an Interactive Map of School Projects, a Breakdown of School Projects & Estimated Costs, and a FAQ about the proposed sales tax.
