The sales tax in most locations in Randolph County will be going up from eight point four percent to eight point nine percent in July, August and September. Presiding commissioner John Truesdell explains what has taken place following a measure that was approved more than two years ago.

Truesdell wants to emphasize that this is not an additional tax.

Truesdell says some of the revenue could go to help with 911 services.

In April 2018, Randolph County voters approved the sales tax question by a margin of more than two to one.
