The Chattooga County Board of Education will hold their regular work session coming up on Thursday, October 17th at the Board Meeting Room. On the agenda is a discussion about the special local option sales tax for education. The board is expected to take up the issue of calling for a vote on the renewal of the sales tax which would have to get the approval of Chattooga County voters next year.
According to the agenda released this week by the Supt. Jared Hosmer:
