Help me out if I’m missing something here. Alamance County Commissioners are discussing whether or not an economic development fund should be capped at $5 million. Looks like prevailing opinion is the cap should be lifted.
But will be the source of aforementioned economic development fund? A quarter-cent sales tax hike that is on the November ballot along with a $15 million bond referendum for improvements to Alamance Community College.
Only problem is odds are against the sales tax hike passing. Commissioners know this, but still they try, try again.
