Local GOP Upset by Proposed Tax Increase
Monday, 02 November 2009

November 2--  Republicans in Toombs County are trying to decide what they can do to fight a proposed property tax increase in Toombs County.

Republican Jim Collins said the issue would be discussed at the local party's monthly meeting.  He said protesting the tax increase would be priority number one and that research is being done on what's required to recall a county commissioner.

Three county commissioners voted for the increase last month with Commissioner Steve Brown voting against it.

The commission is holding public hearings on the proposed increase Wednesday at the courthouse in Lyons.
