New Hanover Commissioners won't wait long on sales tax increase


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County Commissioners won't wait long to vote on a sales tax hike approved by voters back in May. The county Board of Elections will meet July 16 at 8 a.m. at the Government Center to certify the vote. Commissioners have scheduled a public hearing on the quarter-cent increase at the same time in the same room.

Meanwhile, former Commission candidate Justin LaNasa says he plans to continue his appeal challenging the May 4 vote to raise the tax.
