SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Government leaders are fighting for their fair share as Chatham County's commissioners and city officials hash things out in their once-a-decade local option sales tax talks.
The county wants to slash the amount of money cities receive. Under the county's proposal - known as the citizens fair share formula - cities would get $200 million less over 10 years. The penny-on-the-dollar tax adds up to about $600 million over 10 years.
City leaders will counter the county's proposal in a meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the county's administrative building on Bull Street.
