BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The ongoing debate in Brunswick County over sales tax revenue and how to distribute the money continues.
The Brunswick County Sales Tax Distribution Committee is stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Members of the board are trying to decide how to distribute sales tax money among the 19 municipalities in Brunswick County.
This is the second time in as many months that the committee has met to discuss this issue.
There's a strict line drawn between those who support one method over the other.
Every year, the county collects millions of dollars in sales tax revenue.
That money is then distributed among the municipalities using a per-capita method based on population. Under that method, the larger towns get the biggest pieces of the pie.
