Laurel Hill council questions proposed gas tax increase

Published: Monday, May 6, 2013 at 03:14 PM.

Commissioner Nathan Boyles had proposed raising the gas tax 3 cents and suggested allocating the revenue to 10 projects across Okaloosa County.

The council had unanimously voted in favor of extending for a year a funding distribution agreement of the county fuel tax. 

The county will continue receiving 60 percent of fuel tax income; municipalities will receive the remainder.
