The Russell County Fiscal Court will meet in “special called session” Friday at 10:00 a.m. The only item on the meeting’s agenda is to hear the 2nd reading of an amendment to the payroll tax ordinance. As reported by WJRS NEWS after the Fiscal Court’s regular meeting earlier this month, the Court voted to lower the county’s occupational tax from 1% to 3/4%. The lower rate will take effect April 1st.
Friday morning’s Fiscal Court meeting is open to the public and will be held in the former Circuit courtroom at the Russell County Courthouse.
