Richland council to hold hearing on advertising expense

Jul 28, 2010 4:06:00 PM - thestate.com

A public hearing will be held in September on Richland County Council’s decision to spend $25,000 to advertise a referendum on a proposed county sales-tax increase for transportation.

Late Tuesday, the council agreed on a voice vote to allocate the money from yearly transit fees paid by owners of vehicles in Richland County. Voice votes do not record how individual members vote.

Voters will be asked Nov. 2 to increase the general sales tax to 8-cents-on-the-dollar to improve roads, bus service, bike paths, sidewalks and trails. The publicly financed advertising will be used to convey “facts and figures” but not to try to sway voters.

County spokeswoman Stephany Snowden said the public hearing, required because the allocation requires a budget amendment, will be either Sept. 7 or 21.
