County manager to deliver sales tax resolution

Watauga County Manager Deron Geouque plans to hand-deliver a resolution to the N.C. Department of Revenue today requesting a change in the county's sales tax distribution method.

With no agreement reached between the Board of Commissioners and the Boone Town Council, the sales tax change should go into effect July 1. The change is estimated to result in approximately $2 million less to the town of Boone.

The Board of Commissioners voted 3-2 on April 16 to switch to a hybrid ad valorem system, which will provide more funding next fiscal year to Watauga County, Seven Devils, Blowing Rock and Beech Mountain. The board directed that Geouque not submit the resolution until April 30 to allow for any last-minute compromises.
