The Hancock County Board of Supervisors made it official Monday, that all businesses located on the south side of Forest City in Hancock County will begin in July collecting a 1 percent local option sales and services tax. Supervisor Jerry Tlach explains.
Two-thirds of the local option sales and services tax goes towards secondary roads.
In other business, the Hancock County Board of Supervisors made a change to the fiscal year 2018 budget, after learning the county would be paying about $22,000 less than originally estimated to the mental health and disabilities service fund. According to Tlach, that does not mean a decrease in the care or services provided.
