Hancock County/Forest City Businesses Will Collect 1 Percent Local Option Tax

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.
