Wayne County School superintendents say they're pleased with the announcement Friday that county leaders will not go forward with a plan to take back county sales tax revenue.
Since 1968, Wayne County has shared its sales tax revenue with its school districts. That amount was capped at $5,400,000. County leaders with their own budget concerns said they were thinking about ending that sharing plan. School leaders spoke out against the idea at news conference Thursday.
Williamson Schools Superintendent Greg Macaluso said Finance Committee Chairman William Hammond announced Friday the plan would be put on hold because they need more information before going forward. Macaluso said the town supervisors and school leaders now plan to form a committee and work together on their budget concerns.
