Fiscal court approves first reading of occupational tax ordinance

The Russell County Fiscal Court met in special session Monday morning.

The court approved the first reading of the new occupational tax ordinance, which increases the tax from three-quarters of a percent to one percent.

The new ordinance also included language to increase the cap on the tax to $4,000 and eliminate the sunset clause.

A second reading is expected at the regular meeting on March 13.
