Uncertainty over sales taxes in Wayne Co. continues

The uncertainty over sales taxes in Wayne County continues. A meeting Tuesday night ended without a resolution to the question: Will sales tax revenues continue to go to Wayne County schools or be diverted entirely to the county?

Our news partners at the Messenger Post say a county board of supervisors meeting adjourned without discussing the controversy in depth. Some members said they needed more time to get the facts straight.

We first reported this issues last week when teachers, administrators and parents turned out at the courthouse in Lyons to support the sales tax into schools tradition.
