Jefferson leaders agreed Monday night to hire a consulting firm to help with the negotiations for local option sales tax (LOST) revenue.
Mayor Jim Joiner reported that Braselton, Hoschton and Talmo had agreed to participate in this study and help pay for the $21,000 cost. Each city’s percentage of the fee will be based on population. Jefferson leaders have asked all nine towns in the county to participate in the effort.
“This is so important,” Joiner said. “We need to continue. Hopefully, we can get the others on board. We are the lead city because of our population figures. We have more to gain but we have more to lose too.”
City manager John Ward added, “It is a wise investment for you to make.”
