Two Referendum will be on the ballot

2. Chatham County Local Sales and Use Tax. Local sales and use tax at the rate of one-quarter percent (0.25%) in addition to all other State and local sales and use taxes. Read the resolution here. There is no definite use for the additional taxes, and if passed the Commissioners could spend it any way they please.
