Show Notes for Keeler in the Morning – Thursday, August 15th
County Sales Tax Will Stay at 8.75%
The morning started with the Oneida County Sales Tax vote that came yesterday, as the County Legislature voted 26-3 to keep the sales tax where it is.
Legislator Richard Flisnik, (R-Marcy) and Frank Tallarino (D-Rome) were both on the air. Both voted to keep the sales tax where it is, because 'it's just not the right time to increase it.' (Audio will be coming)
